If you haven’t guessed, I LOVE thrift shopping. For me, this includes shopping at flea markets, thrift stores, garage sales, and even antique stores. It’s basically any place where you can haggle a bit for used items. Today, I want to share some repurposing ideas for random vintage finds that I have found during recent shopping trips. I have found some great stuff! I hope you enjoy these.
I thought these stars were amazing. I immediately stopped in my tracks when I saw them. After some google searches, I realized that they were railroad spikes. They were welded to shape stars. I thought these would make great patriotic décor.
This next one is a box made from “junk”; a spigot, license plate, and salvaged wood. I imagine some flowers planted in it and hung outside.
These are crates turned shelves with some vintage Mason jars displayed inside. The yellow one is a Coca Cola crate.
I think this is a vintage chicken coop or nesting box. I’m not sure, but the green attracted me. I love it as is and imagine it used for extra storage in an office or craft room… maybe even a kitchen or bar.
I found some charm in this rusty cheese grater turned photo holder. I liked the little farmhouse vignette.
Not necessarily repurposed, but I love these stacked suitcase, I suppose it’d be nice to grab several and use it as décor/extra storage. Maybe even stack three and make it a TV stand.
Love this jewelry made out of an old shutter. I like the mismatched knobs. This would be cute on a vanity in a bedroom.
Lastly, this is another simple jewelry display idea. I like that the jewelry is what is showcased. No need for fancy knobs, rather a simple nail works for this.
That’s it! Come back soon, because I have several repurposed furniture ideas I have found on my treasure hunts. I will share those soon!
