From flea market find to the home

5 Comments

Everyone loves a bargain, I know I do, especially when I have the perfect place to put it in the home. I found these amazing finds below to share with you, please read on for inspiration

I love the idea of taking a spring cot base and cutting it down to the size you want then attaching bits and pieces you want to display with pegs, clips or even safety pins. Also the old graters turned into pen holders is a brilliant idea. I need one of these old swivel chairs as well, perfect.

What about using old jars for storing utensils.

A cute old shelf  turned into extra kitchen storage and use

Recycle different size boxes to organize all your small bits and pieces that seem to accumulate around the home. These boxes can be used inside drawers or on display, painted or unpainted.

This office storage unit below is ideal for having all your supplies in one place. The shelves and cubby holes  help everything to be on display and easily accessible  The glass jars are ideal as you can easily see whats in them. Baking pans are great to use for storing folders and papers.

Another rustic desk and shelving system and check out the seat attached to the desk itself, that looks like it turns from side to side as well

These antique benches make an outstanding shelving system, for extra stability try anchoring them to the wall. They all have there own stories to tell and are great to display books and special bits and pieces.

This old animal feeder looks wonderful in the kitchen to hold  bottles and other bits and pieces, add a plant for a touch of colour
