Take a peak at this black vintage chest. It's new purpose as a cozy and informal bedside table adds personality and loads of storage opportunities. Think of all the extra blankets, books or winter sweaters you could store...

If you're lucky enough to find a vintage wagon, why not turn it into a show stopping bench? I'd certainly love to sit down and tie my shoes here. This would look amazing at the end of a boy's bed or in a library or entry way. If you love this look, get inspired and build your own!
Are you drawn to industrial things? Consider aging a clean tin garbage can with some dark wax to achieve your own look.

I'm not saying it's practical or comfortable, but it certainly looks cool! Retrofit an old bath tub into a fun reading spot in your playroom! My kids just might read for a few minutes longer..just because. ;)

What do you do with a crib once the last one has outgrown it? Try re-cycling it and turning it into a desk or credenza for your craft space. I'd love to a wrapping station in mine!

Do you have an old bike laying around? Why not turn it into a bathroom sink? It's art and it's functional... just look at that basket and the way used it to store extra hand towels.

Consider a painted filing cabinet inspired end table to add interest and loads of functionality. We love that it's on wheels. Makes cleaning those dust bunnies easy peezy!

Framed full length mirrors can be expensive. You might already have the materials to make one in your own home! Look how this homeowner turned her boring builders vanity mirror into a glamorous full length dressing mirror on the cheap!
We love this conversation piece! Applauses to this homeowner for taking an old filing system and making it the anchor to this room. Oh, the things this could hold! Check your local habitat for humanity stores or on Craigslist for these special finds.

Are you addicted to shoes? Clear up your floor space and re-purpose a bookshelf and turn your closet into a dressing room. Image via Design Indulgences.
Card Catalogs are hard to find but if you're lucky enough to score one, they can make a fun and creative piece of furniture! Don't be afraid to alter them if they don't fit your space.

Get two nightstands for the price of one! We think this a brilliant idea. Cutting a table in half, painting it and bolting it to the wall not only save on space but ads an eclectic tough that's light on your wallet!
