Repurposing old furniture into something that is not only practical but also unique and modern is the ultimate way to recycle. With a little bit of creativity, there are so many clever ways to use broken appliances, old furniture, or even everyday household items. What once was garbage (ready to fill the landfill), can be turned into unique home decor instead. Check out these unique and easy DIY furniture hacks to get inspired!
1. Dining Room Chair Bench
Instead of tossing those old or broken dining room chairs, turn them into a cozy indoor or outdoor bench. I can’t think of a better way to repurpose dated furniture! The paint alone gives them a fresh new look. Go get the details and instructions here.

2. File Cabinet To Garage Storage
I think just about everyone has had one of these metal file cabinets at some point– dents and all! Take out the drawers and turn that huge hunk of metal onto its side to create garage storage space for your brooms, rakes, shovels, and much more! Even the sides have gotten a makeover with peg boards for other miscellaneous garage items. You will find a full tutorial for this project here.
3. Kids’ Craft Table From A Crib
My daughter would love this! Turn an old crib into something useful like a craft table by simply removing one side, painting the “table top” with chalk board paint, and installing a few hooks for supplies. Check out the full details and instructions over at A Little Learning For Two.
