One of the things that my husband and I enjoy doing is finding used furniture and repurposing them into wonderful functional pieces. Thanks to our humble beginnings growing up for introducing us to thrift stores! About 2 yrs ago, I found this vintage sewing machine cabinet and immediately envisioned it to be my future work desk. I bought it for only $20!! We took out the actual machine and replaced it with a custom made wood piece which fits perfectly in the now empty space. Next, we gave it a white paint job (benjamin moore decorators white 04) and the thing was as good as new! The bonus? The front part of the cabinet opens up and it has a little storage space for pens, stickies, etc.
Since it’s been a while, I couldn’t find the before picture of the desk that I took. A little web searching and I saw the same exact one on elkephant…
My business cards are placed in a thrifted dove ashtray that I bought for less than 2 bucks. I hope this post will inspire you to be creative and create something new from something old. I’ll surely share more diy posts as we work on renovating our new home.
Have you done any repurposing lately? Please share!
Have a great weekend.
