1. Transform an Old Pallet Into a Chic Coffee Table

Pallets are affordable and give a Scandinavian look. This makes them the perfect material for a DIY.

Sand it down and use wood glue and clamps to hold the pieces together firmly. Apply a stain or paint of your choice, and then attach the caster wheels using screws and washers. If you need heavy-duty caster wheels, you can find one on this link:

Add a glass top to the finished project to create a sleek look. You’ll have yourself a beautiful new coffee table, perfect for any living space.

2. Repurpose a Cabinet Into a Roomy Bookshelf

Remove the cabinet doors and repaint the exterior of the cabinet in a style that fits the room. Fill the cabinet shelves with a few coats of fresh paint and add a few pieces of wood shelving to accommodate a larger selection of books.

Use old bookends or create your own to add a pop of color and make it look extra special. Place your bookshelf in your living room or bedroom where guests can admire all the hard work you have put into the project. 

3. Construct a Multi-purpose Storage Bench

A DIY multi-purpose storage bench is easy to customize according to your needs and preferences. You also have the opportunity to select the size and shape of the plywood. You can even paint it or cover it with fabric to personalize it further.

The storage bench can also serve as an additional seating area in your living room, hallway, or balcony. This weekend will be fun, easy, and rewarding when you build your own furniture.

4. Create a Statement Chalkboard 

Start by getting an old frame and paint it if desired. Mount the frame to the wall using proper mounting materials. Get fabric to stretch across the frame, taking it to the back. Afterward, purchase chalkboard paint and paint the inside of the frame. 

Hang a slate of chalk on the frame, and your statement piece is complete. Place it in the kitchen for grocery lists, in the bedroom for inspirational messages, or anywhere else to showcase your creativity. 

5. Upcycle an Old Dresser Into a Stylish Sideboard

Begin by removing the existing finish and handles, then sand the dresser to make it smooth. Choose a vibrant paint color for the outside and a complementary color for the drawers and doors. Paint the dresser, add new handles, hinges, and a sealer or top coat.

Mount the new sideboard in its designated area, add décor accessories, and you have an updated, stylish piece of furniture! With a few simple materials, you can transform an outdated furniture piece into a beautiful sideboard.
