Happy Monday! Vintage DIY & Repurposed Weekly Roundup 

Yuppers, it's Monday, time for a heaping serving of vintage DIY and repurposed awesomeness. We base our choices for our weekly round up on the following: 1) all projects need to repurpose or upcycle a vintage item and 2) there is a slim to none chance that anything we select would be confused with a hand-crapped item on Regretsy.

First up is one suitcase with two DIY ideas. Do you prefer the suitcase side table (left) or the suitcase bathroom organizer (below)? You can post your thoughts and find steps on how to create either project here.

Sweet dreams are made of projects like these! Salvaged wood headboards have been popping up everywhere the last year or two and we still have not had our fill! We are particulary fond of the headboard above spotted on House Tweaking.

We are in the midst of putting up shelves we made from salavaged wood so lately any project that puts a new spin on shelving has my full attention. The ‘Filmantes Hanging Shelf’, solves the problem of what can you do with old 35mm reels of film..

Old industrial piping has been getting alot of play lately as lamps and even furniture but we never saw them reinvented as shelving before. What a clever idea! You can see more configurations on the designer's Etsy page, Stella Bleu Designs.
