Repurposed Home Decor

There’s nothing like the thrill of the hunt for a fabulous yard sale or thrift store find. I love DIY projects and repurposed home decor. It is amazing to see what creative people can come up with using salvaged items that would have otherwise been thrown away. Here are some makeovers I’m loving right now.

Old Windows converted into organization station
Upcycled window collage frame
Next time you go to throw away an item that no longer serves it’s intended purpose, think outside the box and find inspiration to make something old new again. Hope you enjoyed these little finds!

  1. I love all of them! I acctually have the kid’s tray table save in my “to do” list for months now! I really need to make them now!

  2. I absolutely love the headboard made out of doors. My father-in-law had two doors for me, but my husband made so much fun of me, that I gave up my idea. I forwarded him the picture. Hopefully he will get my vision now and let me run with it without teasing me!

  3. I love all of these ideas…I just re-purposed an old dictionary into a wreath, and I love the way it came out. It feels so good to up-cycle existing items…

  4. Wow, some really fabulous ideas! Love the door bookcase and headboard and the light bulbs.

  5. I recently turned an old shutter into a headboard. It’s my favorite project so far. I’ve been on the hunt for some nice doors though.

  6. Love this so much! The apple crates to bookshelf is my favorite. Do you have a source link for it? Didn’t see one on the post. I’d like to see how they attached them. Thanks ;)

  7. I love every single image you posted!!! I think the repurposed light bulbs would look so cute hanging from my lattice covering my patio…I think I may just have to try that tomorrow :)

    Thanks for sharing!!


  8. Wow, old doors and windows seem to experience a real revival. My favorite is the kid’s table, though – never quite sure what to do with old cabinet doors, at one point I was considering turning them into trays but this is a way cutter idea. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I love the apple crate bookshelf and the cabinet door kids table and the old windows organization center. Such wonderful creative ideas!

    These tips are so lovely and mind open

  14. Love the shelf unit made of apple crates. would like to build the same from pallet wood. Would you know the dimensions of the crates themselves?


  15. Love to see these awnsome ideas for second time, I have seen the old lights using like yours before. Sometimes we throw away lots of good stuff, thanks Jamielyn for great repurposed ideas

  16. These would all be fun projects! I have been thinking of getting a new headboard, and I really like the one with the doors. I also love the old window collage frame, I have been wanting one of those for a long time but just can’t bring myself to pay what they are wanting at the flea market. Thanks for sharing the fun roundup! Pinned!
