If you have a handful of vintage suitcases, turn them into filing cabinets, side tables, chairs, medicine cabinets, and more – all with the vintage interior design ideas and DIY tips from Poetic Home. Antique library card catalog cabinets transform into bookcases, cocktail bars, and diaper changing stations, while castoff old ladders turn into bookshelves, nightstands, retail displays, and bathtub caddies.
“Repurposing furniture not only helps the environment, but ensures that you have a conversational decor piece that no one else owns. My very first upcycling endeavour involved turning an antique library card catalog into my dining room buffet – and I have never looked back since,” enthusiastically explains Grace Light, the editor of Poetic Home.
The collection of inspiration for repurposed furniture on Poetic Home comes from both Grace Light’s own home, as well as ingenious ideas from other creative individuals. Whether you are outfitting a bedroom or renovating a kitchen, there is a plethora of inspiration in the archives of Poetic Home – with more ideas on vintage interior design being added every week.
As Grace Light shares, “As many pieces in my son’s room are upcycled, I am excited to introduce a new repurposed furniture category specifically for nurseries and children’s rooms. Upcycling for kids is a great way to demonstrate how to think outside of the box, encouraging creativity from a young age. In addition, it helps you stretch your budget to pay for all those diapers!”
