What to Do with Your Old Furniture

Are you moving home, conducting a clear-out or simply fancy getting creative with some old furniture? At Joe Bonnie & Son Moving & Storage, we’ve put together top things to do with your old furniture


There are so many wonderful things that you can do with old furniture. Instead of getting rid of items, many people have started injecting a new lease of life to old pieces by turning them into entirely new and creative items of furniture. You could turn an old crib into a cot, unused crates into an arty bed base, old tires into a retro coffee table. You don’t have to completely change the piece of furniture, you could simply cover an old sofa in new fabric to freshen it up, or turn a classic chest of drawers into a shabby chic piece. Pinterest is a great place to get some ideas.


If you’re completely done with an item of furniture and don’t think that you’ll be able to do anything with it due to time or lack of motivation, consider recycling. You can take any items of furniture to local scrap yards, or you can contact professional recyclers who will find a good home or use for your old piece.

Donate to Charity

There are a number of furniture charity shops throughout the country, many of which will collect from you. Just think, your unused and unneeded items of furniture would suit somebody perfectly and help support a charity in the process.
