Happy Earth Day: Recycled Furniture Ideas!

Happy Earth Day! We believe that buying antique and vintage goods is uniquely green. By not purchasing new furniture you reduce waste like packaging and building materials, you also give new life to an old piece. Above we collected together some great furniture recycling ideas we found on Pinterest

Just a few ideas – turning an old buffet into a gorgeous new bathroom vanity, a vintage suitcase as a medicine cabinet, old shutters as mail holders, an old night stand as a child’s play kitchen, an old dresser as an herb planter (love that) and an old chair seat as a flower planter! We hope some of these clever recycling ideas inspire you to decorate a little greener!
