Upcycled Cottage-Style Furniture

Good morning, lovely ladies (and charming gents, I’m sure)!  Today I’m sharing a few fun upcycling projects from Better Homes and Gardens.  This first one is a cottage-style medicine cabinet fashioned from an old dresser drawer.  Vintage wallpaper in the bottom of the drawer gives it whatever personality you want it to have.

Here is a standard, unfinished wood bookcase.  Most of us would stain it or paint it white and be done.

A spring rod, a little fabric, and vintage wallpaper make for a darling piece suitable for a dining or living room.

Ready to toss out an old pressboard entertainment center?  Maybe you should rethink that . . .

That very piece has been painted and repurposed as a cheery laundry center!  This could even work as a toy cabinet or bookcase in a child’s room.

What a great idea repurposing that old wardrobe into a laundry centre. It makes a lot of sense as it already has the facility to hang clothes. I’ve never seen that idea before.

Love it, love it, love it! Cheap and green – two of my favorite adjectives!

I’m all for upcycling! In fact, I’ve got a few numbers waiting for some upcycling right now. Thanks for the inspiration! Maybe they will be a weekend project!
