Pinterest images inspire ReStore projects
Habitat for Humanity ReStore of Jefferson County recently refurbished several furniture pieces based on items they saw on Pinterest. They set up these pieces around the store, accompanied by the Pinterest image that inspired them. The furniture was then raffled off to their customers.
This project shows how much you can transform a vintage chair just by painting the cushion.
Retro file cabinet
Don’t know what to do with that retro file cabinet? Imagine the storage uses you can get out of it if you just flip it on its side.
Vintage dragonfly decoration
This dragonfly may not be the most functional piece from this collection, but it certainly does add a decorative flair. Not only that, but it also uses parts of a vintage ceiling fan for a new and interesting purpose.
We’ve probably all seen projects like this, but not quite this elegant. The headboard-into-a-bench idea certainly adds a new level of sophistication when you include the banisters from the footboard and some decorative pillows for added comfort.
Antique brass chandelier planter
Have an antique brass chandelier that you don’t know what to do with? This is a great idea! Just add some paint and small pots and you have a new hanging planter for your backyard. You can even switch it up by adding smaller cups to the ends to make perfect bird feed holders.
