Decorating With Cable Spools


Wooden pallets are still appearing everywhere. Lets have a look at cable spools and how we can use them to decorate our home. My aunt has one of those since 2 decades ago, long before repurposing old stuff became a trend. She uses it for table in the garden and I remember thinking how smart idea it was!


Tables are the most favorite makeover of a cable spool. It can be a beautiful and handy coffee table. You can let the wood show or you can paint it as you like.
