Everything new is well forgotten old. In our case, this expression can be taken literally. Old Soviet wardrobes, dressers, bedside tables are still in the apartments of many of our compatriots, and the owners do not seek to throw them away. And all because they simply do not have the funds to purchase new furniture. We found a way out.
1. Chest of drawers
An interesting example of the transformation of an old faceless chest of drawers into a stylish white sofa. In the process of rework, the craftsmen got rid of the two upper sections with cabinets, leaving only the lower ones.
2. Updating the curbstone
A radical transformation of an old dilapidated curbstone, during which painting, stucco decoration, installation of a drawer and replacement of fittings were carried out. Ultimately, the dilapidated sideboard turned into a modern nightstand in a classic style.
3. TV stand
Soviet TV cabinet, the practical value of which has been exhausted over time. It has evolved into a fairly modern shelf for newspapers, magazines and books.
4. Old chair
Old loose chairs will create creative shelves that can be hung in the kitchen, hallway, or anywhere in a country house. According to Novate.ru, such unusual shelves can easily become a highlight of a room.
If you still have drawers from your old desk or chest of drawers, you can use them to create colorful, original shelves. Fresh painting, decoupage, decor with photographs - all this will allow you to turn rags into practical and beautiful things.
Too dark lacquered Soviet-style furniture does not look at all in modern interiors. However, do not rush to put a cross on such items, especially when it comes to high-quality wood products. All that is required of you is to scrape off the varnish, thoroughly clean all the structural elements, and then paint them in the color you like.
Few will raise a hand to throw away the old piano, but leaving everything in its original form, provided that no one is using it for its intended purpose, is also stupid. In this case, you can simply remake the musical instrument into the original desktop.
A wonderful example of using an unnecessary door with glass windows. Creative masters renewed its color, artificially aged it, turned the windows into frames for photographs, and attached several hooks at the bottom. The result is a very original hanger that will decorate the interior of any hallway.
Another example of the complete transformation of an unsightly narrow chest of drawers, which, through simple manipulations, was turned into a compact soft sofa. According to Novate.ru, such a sofa will perfectly fit into the interior of the hallway.
Soft panels are a fairly simple way to give an old Soviet wall a more aesthetic and modern look.
11. Round table
A wooden table with a worn-out top will no longer have to be hidden under a tablecloth if you decorate it using the now popular decoupage technique.
12. Old door
An old classic door can be thrown into the trash with a light heart, or it can remain in your home as a luxurious headboard. To give the new headboard an aesthetic look, you will have to sand it well and paint it in a new color or upholster it with a beautiful fabric.
A boring faceless bookcase will take on a completely new look if all its parts are painted in a new color, and the far inner wall is pasted over with bright wallpaper or fabric.
14. Metal cabinet
A metal wardrobe is a functional thing, but not very attractive in terms of design. Most often, these are in offices and government offices. However, if you happen to have such a cabinet, you can turn it into a functional garden tool holder. Well, original painting will help to give it brightness.
15. Sewing machine
The frame of an antique Singer sewing machine will be an excellent basis for a unique Provence-style table. In this particular case, an old window in a wooden frame was used instead of a tabletop, but you can get by with a regular tabletop. The entire structure should be painted in a pleasant pastel shade.
A perfect example of transforming an unnecessary wooden bed into a vibrant garden bench. All you need for the rework is a saw or jigsaw, a few wide boards, nails and paint of any bright shade.
The design of Soviet furniture, of course, leaves much to be desired. We have picked up another visual portion excellent options for remaking Soviet wardrobes and dressers.
