Excellent idea over at Ikea Hacker for spicing up the Expedit glass topped coffee table – so simple and the possibilities are endless.
Make your own bowl from a ‘for sale’ sign (plenty of ’em about in the current financial climate :P), or any other kind of sheet metal sign for that matter – tutorial at Instructables. I love repurposed metal signage 🙂
I was very pleased when Ian Cremona contacted me with a link to a post about his living room, which he has furnished with handmade furniture made from repurposed wood pallets. I have to admit I just love it when people do this – I’ve just moved house and am trying to furnish and decorate on almost zero budget right now, so this is a real inspiration 🙂 I have a real soft spot for wood pallet furniture, but I haven’t been brave enough to attempt any so far, so thanks a million to Ian for sharing!
This is a great before and after – Kathryn worked her magic on an old telephone table that was fit for the dump, using paint for Colortrend and fabric from Ikea. I think this is better than anything you could buy new – more proof that a little creativity goes a long way 🙂
