Repurpose cd rack

Looking for unusual DIY decor ideas?

How about how to repurpose a CD rack into something useful? Or how to use a ladder as a coat rack?

As technology moves on, things like CD racks are more often in charity shops than on a living room wall.

But what if you repurpose the wood into something that shows off your personal style? And the best part being that it’s now a functional piece too.

These projects are often made with thrift or charity shop pieces and are always on a budget.

One of my favourites is what I created with this free kitchen cabinet door. I took it from being destined for landfill to treasured DIY home decor.

Beautiful decor with a use. The perfect solution.

I share ways to create original and interesting decor pieces for your home.

Including how to add a stencil to a mirror, the easy way. A personalised mirror is a piece of art in itself. What’s better than your own gallery wall made of something unique to you?

It’s not always about having a completely out-of-this-world idea.

Sometimes the amazing ideas are about finding the heart of a piece.

There are so many ways to use an empty space without needing a lot of money. Just a bit of time and the desire to get creative.

Looking for a focal point for an empty wall? Or large wall decor ideas? How about creating a DIY large mirror with IKEA mirror panels? 

It’s consistently one of my most-read posts. It makes such a statement and is a flexible design to fit any size. I added a personal touch to it and it’s a great way to add more light to a small space.
