When re covering a couch it’s best you choose a neutral colour or classic print that will last the test of time. As it can be expensive and you want your piece to last.

I think denim like material would be a classic that wouldn’t go out of fashion to quickly. It’s especially nice with a more luxurious style sofa. This image is from hgtv.


These are nice matching but not, perfect.

I like this striped one, cute.

Floor Boards

Old drum not in use, so fun and interesting. Great for a low bed.

Side bin as a bedside table. Great for a rustic look, to add a bit of fun to your home.

So cute the carved rabbit, would be great to hide books.

I saw a great old locker on the street side pick up the other day, but was too slow would have been great for craft room study.

This suitcase stacked table would be easy to create simply collect some suitcases or trunks then stack them and lay old wooden door or new fresh piece of timber on top. This would be great for a side table as you could just stack one height of cases and lay some timber or glass on top. It would also work for additional storage space if you filled the cases with all of your winter clothes or rarely used items. I do like to collect nice case and baskets and I tend to store all of my clothes in these at the top of the wardrobe where they remain unseen, this would be a great way to show them.

This suitcase table is really cool also. You can make your own if you would like click here to be taken to my older post with a collection of furniture pieces you can make using suitcases.
