How about some Vintage Upcycle Inspiration this morning? The garage sales have started…Flea Markets are buzzing and even the roadsides are piling up with some little piles of goodness. I have my radar out for drawers…any kind…any size!
Let’s see what some of our creative blogger friends have been cooking up!
If you are someone that loves to collect license plates…how cool is this! Have you ever thought of cutting the plates up to make name plates? How cool would that be! So when you see them at a market or wherever…you just might look at them with possibility instead of saying…these are cool but what would I do with them???
shares an amazing idea…this show you even if you see something that is not working or maybe doesn’t have all it’s pieces…it still can be amazing…check out these vintage rotary fan covers and see what they have become…hot …trending and FABULOUS succulent wall gardens! Color me impressed!!! Check out the full DIY!!!
you will find some wonderful inspiration like this incredible door/table…how cool does this look! Just by taking a door…giving it an awesome paint treatment of your liking and continuing the creativity on a table and shelf you can have a unique and striking original one of a kind piece of furniture that will catch everyone’s eye for sure. Oh so many possibilities!
Over at Sweet Southern Vintage I saw this piece…I so wish it came with a DIY…but I wanted you to see it…so if you see a vintage soda crate…this is another possibility of creativity…adding some vintage cigar boxes…and spools…you have something so incredibly unique and awesome! Don’t ever let a vintage soda crate pass you by if it is a fair price…they offer a world of vintage wonder : )
Old pots…pans…pie plates…magically become the coolest bird feeder on the block!
How about decorating with vintage toys?
So easy…so awesome!

How great is this idea. If you are lucky enough to find a little staircase…don’t let it pass you by…it can be perfect for everything you want to display in a very unique way! Love this idea…just wish they were a little easier to come by.
I have seen metal vintage headboards used for a lot of things…but never a garden gate…how ingenious is this!
What does HGTV do with 4 doors??? Well make a cool shed of course and all of your Doctor Who Fans…this could be an out of this world Tardis!
