Back in the day when I was home stager, my job required quite a lot of creativity and out-of-the box thinking. Tight budgets often meant that we needed to use what the client had on hand to prepare a home for the market or complete the finishing touches on a room redesign project. Creative repurposing was the name of the game!
Today, I'm sharing some great examples of creative repurposing from around the blogosphere that you can use in your own home. I hope you find these repurposing/upcycling ideas inspiring...whether you are planning to sell, or you just love the idea of creating a new look using items that you already have.
Oftentimes when you create a new seating arrangement, it screams out for an occasional table, but there aren’t any available in the home. Stacking attractive baskets that you already have on hand is an easy and inexpensive solution.
The baskets can also double as hidden storage to quickly stash away clutter in preparation for a home showing…just sayin’!
You can place a coffee table book or serving tray on top of the baskets to hold a beverage or to corral a vignette of pretty accessories.
(isn’t this outdoor space drool-worthy?)
