WHEN OBJECTS FIND NEW HOMES: RE-PURPOSING FURNISHINGS…

How far I have come since I started blogging!  Over at Curl up and Read, where my About page features the TBR Stacks I had back then, take note of a redwood cart (barely visible) that then housed (almost) my more than 160 unread books.

 

Once I bought some more actual shelves, I found other uses for the cart, since I love to re-purpose my furniture.  The cart was actually intended as a barbecue cart, but I found other uses.  Like a shelf in my office, below:

Now it resides in my office, next to my desk, holding notebooks and a basket; a little worse for wear, but finding its new purpose:

This week I read a book that touted the wonders of re-purposing, and while the book offered much more impressive examples, I couldn’t help but feel a connection to what the authors of Open House were offering. (Click title for my review).

Do you enjoy re-purposing furnishings?  What draws you to some pieces over others?
