    This is originally a chicken nesting box, used in hen houses as a spot for hens to lay eggs.

    16. Coming home to roost. Unless you’re an urban homesteader or a poultry farmer, you may not realize that what we’re looking at here is an old chicken nesting box where hens once laid their eggs. Instead of clucking birds, it now houses country jars and pitchers.More9 Tips for Making Your Shelf Display Look GreatStyle Your Open Kitchen Shelving Like a Pro

    Talk about creative reuse! This industrial-looking shelf is actually a set of old chicken nesting boxes, now home to the owner’s kitchen collectibles.

    6. Hunt down old industrial items. Reuse old farm or industrial items to add an old rustic finish to your laundry room. Use as shelving for sheets, to store jars of laundry detergent and clothespins, or to display a collection — such as old milk jugs, mason jars or vintage linens. You can leave your find in the original metal finish (rust adds character) or buy one of the many available colors of metal spray paint. Make sure you buy a metal primer too.More industrial-style accessories

    What is it? A nesting nook for birds.What is it doing in its new life? Providing a nest for sweet vintage pitchers and jars inside the house. Requirements: Lots of elbow grease to make sure it's clean and sanitary; someone who knows how to hang something level and find studs; two people to hang it.

    Can you believe this used to be a nesting box? It was given new life as a box to display vintage finds. Rusty? Yes. Beautiful? Definitely!

    If you're short on kitchen storagee, get clever by hanging an old nesting box. You'll likely be able to find one for not too much money at antique shops or flea markets, and it will give you a chance to display your fun dishware instead of hiding it.

    Put a simple collection of antique dishware on contrasting industrial shelving for a rustic and vintage look.
