When it comes to furniture DIYs, most ideas are simply surface level. But these pieces didn’t just get painted or stained — they got entirely new second lives.
Here is an example of utilizing a barn door by adding updated hardware and a Full Headboard/Footboard to create a bench

There are so many ways to re-purpose, recycle & renew pieces of furniture. The best part is that these pieces are made with a high level of craftsmanship and have a lot of life left.
So much better than buying new, pressed wood and mass produced furniture.
Not only are you creating a unique piece but you are also recycling and helping create a more sustainable world.
