Repurposed Table Ideas

by Dinah Wulf

I have been blogging for what seems to be a while now.  In my search for repurposed furniture I have seen some really cool and creative stuff.  Today, I wanted to write about repurposed table ideas.  I’ve seen a ton of suitcase tables and pallet tables but this time I wanted to find some truly unique pieces.  Here is what I came up with!

I love this wood soda crate coffee table.  I could have sworn I saw it on Martha Stewart show.  She did a short DIY segment with the designer to create shadow boxes atop an old table base, with tempered glass securely placed on top.

This one is very clever and one I haven’t seen before.  Can you guess what it is?  It’s a repurposed fire hose reel!  I love the natural patina and the industrial look.  It also adds a great pop of color to a living, sitting, or family room.  As an added bonus, there is storage underneath as well!

You’ll never guess what this is! The base is from a 1931 stove from a knotty pine cottage.  I love the tri colors with a polished shine.  Very pretty!

This is an upcycled spool top with modern and slick red metal legs.  Love the combo of the two.

OK, so I have seen SEVERAL upcycled suitcase tables, but THIS one is awesome!!!! The storage underneath is fabulous and I love that it opens on both sides and looks like it folds up for easy storage…AMAZING!

Not much to say about this one except I had to post it in honor of my husband! LOL!

OK, not sure about this upcycled aquarium but someone out there liked it because it’s sold on Etsy!
