This roundup of 50+ repurposed table ideas will inspire you to change up or transform that table you have in storage, or maybe you just found the perfect table at a thrift store or on the side of the road. In any case, you're sure to find something here to inspire you to save an old table from the landfill or dump. Old tables are generally well made and will last much longer than the newer tables of today.
Some of these table ideas are simple makeovers with paint and or stain. Others are a little more complicated, and even a few may include a saw to change the table up. There are even ideas to turn other furniture items into tables that are useful.
Are you more of a table makeover person or a table transformation? Do you refinish tables or just paint them? There is definitely something here for you regardless.
I hope you pin this collection so others can find inspiration, and it will help you remember where you found over 50 table ideas!
