5 Things To Repurpose For Kitchen

Share |

Kitchen is one of the most hefty expenses and can put a significant dent in your remodeling budget. If you want to save this time around and a new kitchen is not on top of your priorities you can repurpose some things to get a decent kitchen upgrade without breaking the bank.

Repurposed Kitchen Ideas

School lockers as kitchen storage

Old Lockers

Old school gym lockers make for great kitchen storage. They will also add a touch of industrial style to your kitchen so if you want to redecorate in that style add a few more metallic flea market finds like chairs and stools or a table to tie it all together.

Vintage Cart

A cart can beused as a mobile kitchen island or a serving tray between a kitchen and a dining room/area. A vintage cart will spruce up a plain traditional kitchen and will add a touch of old glamour to it. You can continue in a vintage or shabby chic direction by adding afloral curtains, distressed repurposed kitchen island and old fashioned faucet to it.

Cabinet Bookshelf

An old cabinet bookshelf can also become a beautiful vintage accent in your kitchen while holding your groceries or dishes. It is a great way to display china and your favorite tableware sets.


Ladder rack for pots and pans in the kitchen

A ladder may not be the most decorative thing but it can be repurposed in a number of ways. We like the idea of making it a rack for pots and pans. It doesn’t take up too much space so you can free your tiny kitchen from additional cabinets.


Dresser kitchen island

A dresser can be repurposed for anything. It can be turned into a kichten island, but then the bigger it is the better. It can become a table, a wine bar, and other non kitchen furniture.
