Fix it Friday – Same Bookshelf, New Life

If you simply can’t resist getting a new bookcase from Nadeau, it’s okay, we understand. But just because you are redecorating doesn’t mean you need to get rid of your old furniture. Revamp and add! Instead of tossing an older piece consider utilizing it in a new way. We have picked some of our favorite repurposed bookshelves to give you some DIY inspiration.

If you have young children, chances are you aren’t reading as much as you used to, but that doesn’t mean you should toss a bookcase. See how to transform it into a one-of-a-kind dollhouse here.

As your kids age, simply turn it back upright and voila, they have their first desk to do homework at.

If your bookshelf is getting a little worn in at this point, try re-staining it, or better yet, take it outside and use it as a vegetable garden.
