It is so fun to see all the creative ideas for repurposing vintage items. There is so much inspiration that you can find to revive/repurpose/reuse anything. Here is some of my favorites.
Not that I wear earrings but, I love the idea of using a old cheese grater for an earring holder. Spice racks can be used in any vingette. I have had tons of fun painting the old brass taper candle holders. These days almost anything metal can be made into a a memo board.
Old glass, brass or wooden door knobs or hooks afixed to an old piece of wood or architectural element make a great way to hag your coat, towels or keys. Vintage wallpaper is a perfect way to dress up anything really. Here they used it on the back of the shelves. Old jars and bottles are great to use as a catch-all for change or hold flowers....
These are just great! Tupperware as a light!! Love it!! There are so many ways to use a simple light kit to make a beautiful light. The uplit cheese graters...who would have thought??
Another one of my favorites, the old wooden boxes such a pretty way to hold books, craft tools, office supplies.... I use these old cornices as bookends.
As I said, you can make memo boards and or magnetic boards ot of anything these days with some magnetic paint, cork or chicken wire. I like the old world look of the suitcase end table.
