The old furniture that you think cannot be brought to your users might prove you wrong.

Suppose you are interested in knowing which type of furniture will suit which room in your house or which furniture you should get for your farmhouse. In that case, you can visit HomeBnc’s blogs, where you can get a multitude of tricks and suggestions for decorating your house and giving it the personality you always wanted.

Now let us see what you can repurpose your old furniture without needing the help of carpenters or painters.

Old Bed

If your bed is no more in the condition in which you can sleep on it, then do not think of it as a complete piece of junk. With the help of some modifications and workforce, your old bed can be converted into a garden bench. Although the bed was not comfortable for a good sleep, it will be comfortable for a late coffee in the garden. It will also help your garden look beautiful, and you will be able to spend more time sitting in your garden.

Old bookshelf

Your old bookshelf you probably are not using to keep books can also be brought into some use. You can apply paint on it if it appears to be shabby. Now that you have painted the old bookshelf, it can be used as a trophy shelf to showcase your trophies previously kept in boxes in the storeroom. This, apart from decorating the house, will also allow you to boast about yourself to your kids and your neighbors and friends. This will serve multiple purposes.

Old cabinet drawers


The drawers from your old cabinet can also be brought to some use. Your drawers can be used as alone shelves stuck to the walls where you can keep artistic stuff or books. Before sticking it to the wall, do not forget to polish it properly and apply new paint. This will also help you to decorate your house and use your space even more judiciously and efficiently.

Old Chair

If you are in a dilemma of throwing your old chair because it looks pathetic and at the same time do ‘t feel right doing so because it is still strong enough to withhold your weight, then this tip is for you.

You can apply new paint to your old chair and apply cushions on it covered with a beautifully designed piece of cloth. You can either purchase these utensils from your nearby shop or can use what is available with you. Do not be too hesitant to buying these utensils as these will still be a lot cheaper than a readymade chair

If you don’t know which color or which design your chair should be like, then you must consider revisiting HomeBnc’s blogs for a ton of ideas and inspirations.

DIY Fabric Phone Charging Station

When are having a smartphone in hand, some, or the other day you come across a situation when you find charging your phone a troublesome job? The safety of your phone is of great importance.


When staying in a hostel as a student or in a hotel during your vacation or when you are at a friend’s place and find that the charging slot is at a very high place and you find that while getting your phone charged, you land up letting your phone swing along the place to get it charged.

It is of significant risk to your phone, so we need to find a smart solution. Today, we would learn how to make a DIY fabric phone charging station.

DIY fabric phone charging station is easy sewing and can be made from a fabric personalized to your choice. If you have plenty of left-over fabric, you can mix, match, and make many of them and even gift a few to your friends and relatives.

Let us see what all do we need:

  • Fabrics
  • Scissors
  • Threads
  • Sewing machine
  • Some buttons, beads, etc. for decoration (it is entirely on personal choice)
  • lace

To begin with, you first need to measure your phone. Now, take the fabric piece and cut it backside and the front side of the phone station. Remember to keep a few inches in hand so that the length and breadth do not fall short when you sew the sides. Next, you need to cut fabric for the outer pocket; this should be a little small in length to your outer sides.

Place the outer body pieces on a table and fold all the sides, keeping the cloth inside out. Repeat the same with the other piece too. Hold the two together, sew the three sides together, keeping in mind that you need to bring out the cloth inside out when the sewing is done.

Now, it is easy to sew the outer pocket over/ on the front side of the cloth to make a home/pocket for your mobile to be placed. So, sew it to the three sides keeping the top open. We need to sew both the main cloth and the pocket a second time, so the sewing is strong enough to hold the mobile phone.

We need a punch hold on top of the main fabric to pass through our charger, so take the measurement accordingly and make a round cut on the top middle of the main fabric. After the cut is done, you can sew or paste a lace around the cut to decorate it. You can iron the fabric to give a clean look to it.

When you are using the charger, hang the phone holder on the charger’s plug portion and then the phone down into the pocket. You can also use the same pocket even for keys. These fabric phone holders are of great use, especially when you are traveling.

I hope you found a way of making the DIY fabric phone station fun. You can also try out using different cloth for the pocket and even decorating or beautifying it with decorative buttons and laces.
