That's what this round up of features is all about. With a little paint or restyling you can turn an old furniture piece or item into a cool one-of-a-kind home decor piece and give it new life! From salvaged doors to vintage suitcases, get some inspiration with these great examples of how to turn the old into new and fabulous! Check out some of these fantastic repurposed DIY projects:
