Let’s Get Crafty…DIY Ideas for Estate Sale Finds!

IMG_7401

Nobody loves estate sales more than us, and we come across SO many great treasures! But…sometimes you need a little inspiration to know what to DO with all the great stuff you run across, right? Well, we’ve put together a few ideas to help get you in the mood to hit the sales…you never know what you’re going to find! We’ve got two great sales this week and many more to come all summer…

IMG_7397

Add a set of wheels to a stack of old crates (Home Depot has wheels like the ones pictured), stack those crates high and you’ve got a rustic storage area to corral clutter in an entryway. The soda bottle box on top holds sunglasses, mittens and scarves. So unique and different, right? Plus a great re-use of old items.

IMG_7392Decorate a set of basement stairs with old license plates! We come across these in basements and garages all the time! A fun collection that you can display and add to over time, right?

IMG_7390

So easy! Stack old suitcases to make a great bedside table…and they are excellent storage for things like linens and out-of-season clothing items. Add a tray or mirror on top for a finished look.

IMG_7395

We love this one! An old treadle sewing machine cabinet has been transformed into a vanity table with storage for make-up and jewelry. A great way to update and re-purpose this stylish antique piece.

IMG_7394

Create a pet bed out of an old dresser drawer! A new set of legs are added, plus a cushion…much fancier than your typical foam pet bed.

IMG_7393

Here’s one for us here in Tennessee, right? Almost any bottle can be transformed into a soap dispenser with a simple pump kit; they are easy to find at Michael’s craft stores or on Amazon.

IMG_7396

We see so many gorgeous vintage linens in our sales. Here’s a great idea that anyone with basic sewing skills can accomplish…what a fun way to re-use that pretty embroidery!

IMG_7386

Create a drinks station with a simple wooden shelf and a galvanized bucket! We often come across small occasional pieces like this…just cut out the top with a jigsaw and drop in your bucket. Perfect for 4th of July parties.

IMG_7389

Up-cycle that old picture frame…paint it, staple strips of lace to the back and hang an earring collection. Wouldn’t that be a great gift item?

IMG_7388

Here an old grater holds a beautiful bouquet of dried flowers…an easy and unexpected idea that would look great in a kitchen or on a patio.

Ready to hit the sales? We’re going to keep ’em coming all summer and we definitely have some fabulous ones coming up this season. Our retail store, Michael Taylor At Home, is open this week with TONS of great items ready to use as/is or to re-purpose in creative and new ways!
