This week we’re looking at some clever ways to use five salvage items we’ve found roaming around markets and stores.

1 – Vintage nautical pulley turned light fixture. This wooden pulley, right off an old boat, has found a new life as a crafty light fixture perfect for an industrial looking space.

2- Old wine bottle drying rack turned glasses drying rack. When my grandpa would make his own wine, he used a similar looking rack to dry the empty bottles, before filling them. Today, it’s a cool addition to a kitchen counter, bringing glasses out of the cupboard and resting in plain view, contributing a country/funky feel.

3 – Vintage suitcases turned side table. Old style suitcases, in different sizes and color, can make for an inventive and colorful end table: just stack them and add an exotic touch to your bedroom or living room!

4 – Old Chest turned coffee table. Antique chests such as this one can turn a coffee table into the focal point of a room! With or without a glass top, and as an extra storage device, it is really a treasure chest! This one from Living Spaces (retail $420) is a great find.

5 – Vintage signs turned wall décor. These road signs contribute a unique wall décor to any room and can be arranged in a fun way in a boy’s bedroom, as a wall mural, adding a lot of personality to the space!
