Repurposed Kitchen Inspiration

by Dinah Wulf

My motto is, “Repurpose, Reinvent.” (If you haven’t noticed ;))

I thought I’d put together some of my favorite repurposed kitchen ideas from some of my favorite websites.

A website I peruse often is Apartment Therapy.  They have countless inventive and creative ideas.  Check out this repurposed IKEA shoe rack turned pot holder and this salvaged card drawer turned kitchen storage.

Here are some repurposed fruit crates for shelving and storage from Poetic Home. I love the idea of displaying canned preserves in old mason jars as opposed to hiding them in the cupboard.

Anyone know where I can get truck springs? Check out these fabulous repurposed truck springs as bar or counter stools from House Beautiful. It reminds me of something from the Picker Sisters.

Card catalogues are popular. Also from Poetic Home, a card catalogue for kitchen utensils has enough compartments to store your knives, forks, spoons, serving utensils, napkins, and more!

Although not necessarily repurposed, this upcycled and salvaged dish rack from Country Living is beautiful.

I found this repurposed newsstand into a plate rack from a great blog, Craft Journal.

This cut idea from Better Homes and Gardens is simple and unique.  Consider adding a magnet to the back and hanging them on your refrigerator.
