Inspiring Old Stuff Made New

I think I’ve looked at every last picture in the expanse of the internet about how to re-use old doors, old tin ceiling tiles, and old scrap wood for headboards and coffee tables! Plenty of great ideas out there! Here’s some of the ones I found most inspiring:

Pretty sure my favorite headboard idea here is the awesome stained glass window. Although for the hefty prices I saw at the salvage yard – that one will have to wait for another day. For now, I am thinking I like the headboard idea with the wood planks that say “love” on them.. or perhaps the fireplace mantle idea if I can find a good deal on a mantle.

I’m especially loving the idea of mixing an old door and ceiling tiles for a coffee table too. Laying the tiles into the panels of the door I think would look pretty fabulous. I really love the color and worn texture of the teal coffee table above – may do something similar to that color.

We will be taking a trip back to the salvage yard this weekend to pick up all the goods and get crackin! And yes, I could not decide whether I wanted to do a coffee table or a headboard – so for now, I am just planning to do both! ;)

    The window is my favorite too! But a close second is the lower right, ornate wood. But that looks very pricey as well… not to mention hard to find. Hey I have a few metal tiles if you want them, but I don’t think any match. I can pop them in the car and show you at work. Just let me know. Happy salvaging!

    • Yes that bottom wood one is a close second for me too. So pretty! I would love to check out the tiles you have and see if they might be something I could use! You rock!! Thanks Becky!
