Idea: Repurposed Coffee Table
We recently got a new coffee table for our living room, and thus wanted to get rid of the old one. It was the Lack model from Ikea- really cheap, around $20- and we were going to just chuck it.
We also have been planning on getting a rack for our entry way, because we would lazily throw our shoes all around immediately after coming in the door. Not very nice looking :) Being the budget-minded gal I am, I had the thought that we could just reuse the discarded coffee table.
We found a beautiful blanket at a nearby thrift store, and bam! New shoe rack! And if the blanket gets messy, just throw it in the wash to clean.
Now, I'm not suggesting you go out and buy a coffee table in order to make it into a shoe rack :P But I think it's cool what you can do with resources at hand. Throwing something away? Think twice about it! Maybe it can be refashioned into a new item that you need, with a little effort (and this one took practically no effort at all!)
