If you ever come across an old suzani with a low pricetag due to spotted wear or damage, you still might consider snatching it up. Take a look at these DIY-able projects that would be perfect for repurposing an old, less-than-perfect suzani:

1 a sofa upholstered with mismatched suzanis, via Anne Sage
2 antique suzani pillows from Tessera
3 a suzani-covered ottoman, with complete instructions at Better Homes and Gardens
4 try a small suzani-made bedside rug, like this one from Anthropologie, via Anthropologie Addict
5 cover a small tabletop, as in this example from 9 Mile Schoolhouse
