Your Next Great Home Decor Idea Could Already Be in Your Home

Inspired by one of our favorite Real Simple features, we went for a stroll around Instagram to see if we could find some great decor ideas using items already in your home. Also known as "new uses for old things," this trend involves taking "found objects" and repurposing them with new functions. Jam Jars as wine glasses? Lightbulbs as pear arrangement? Cheese grater jewelry display? We're into all of this -- though the underwear chandelier might be a bit of a stretch.

happy national wine day, lovers!
