Great Furniture Hack Ideas

Taking old furniture and repurposing it into something beautiful and totally different from its original purpose is a thrilling thing. These furniture hacks are some of my favorites, and they’re sure to give you some great ideas. One thing I like about them is that almost all of these use common furniture that we see frequently as discards in someone’s trash, as a cheap buy at garage sales or thrift stores, or you may have something similar sitting in your garage.

A fresh coat of paint and you would never guess the origin of this kitchen island! This is one of the cleverest dresser hacks I’ve seen.
