New Uses for Old Things/Bookcase

20 Feb

Ideas for old things in your new house:

When we’re talking about old things or better said antiques, it does not necessarily mean that it is something that grandma used it way back than, but better yet, something that can be of use for us in today’s modern world, so we’ve  found a report by countryliving.com that shows us six new uses for old things.

5. Built-In Bookcase

To establish enough storage and display space for his growing collections, Scherer installed custom cabinets and shelves throughout his house. In each case, he combined salvaged furniture — from wood-paneled doors to full sets of lockers — with standard Home Depot materials, plus his own sweat equity. The catalyst for this wide bookshelf in Scherer’s living room? Three cabinet doors that cost a total of $75 at a local salvage yard. Scherer built the unit’s frame, attached the doors in a playfully mismatched arrangement, and unified it all with a coat of white paint.
