It is hard to replace the furniture items in our home frequently, simply because they tend to cost a lot more then the smaller decorative objects. Sometimes our home could really use some refreshing purely for aesthetic reasons and sometimes for pure necessity, and even then we choose the cheaper furniture instead of the one we truly like.

But, if you’re handy with power tools you could make some unique pieces of your own and you can save even more money if you repurpose other old objects, like for example a wooden cable spool. You can take this disposable object and turn it into some pretty fun and elegant items, like a mobile bookcase or an ottoman or cable spool bar table.

Whatever you want and it will cost you next to nothing. Want to know how you can repurpose a wooden industrial spool? Then take a look at these 7 stunning DIY projects.
