Decor and You Interior Design on Colorado's Best TODAY!
Tune into Colorado's Own Channel 2 at 12 pm today to see Decor and You Denver featured in a Colorado's Best segment, "Repurpose or Throw Out". Linnore and the rest of the Decor and You team will help you decide if you should repurpose current furniture or simply throw it out and start anew.
In anticipation of our upcoming television appearance, here are a few of our favorite repurposing tricks.
Reuse old shutters or doors as wall decorations- repaint your old doors or shutters in a fresh hue and look for ways to use them in your home. When mounted on the wall, shutters become instant organizers, storing everything from mail to photos. Old doors can be used to top shelves or coffee tables, or mounted behind the bed as a unique headboard.

Keep in mind that repurposing furniture does not have to involve huge transformations. Here are a few of our favorite quick tricks for transforming your rooms.
- If you are tired of a piece of furniture, try moving it into a different room. You will be amazed how that simple change can transform a piece from old and boring to new and intriguing.
- Replace the knobs on your dressers and cabinets. Look for colorful, interesting knobs that incorporate elements of the room's design.
- Remove doors or glass panels to open up your shelving units. Tidy up the shelves or add a few objects to create a new display.
- Repaint your furniture or apply a new stain. It will look like a totally different piece.
Make sure to tune it at noon today to Colorado's Best and learn more about repurposing!
