|This is what OLDER people do during the day with their spare time!
Repurpose Old Barrels Into a Drum Set
(Your neighbors will love you!)
Repurpose a Card Catalogue Into a Mini Bar (0r jewelry box or small collection keeper, you can even lock your precious collections in.)
Use Old Books as Shelves (Great for an office.)
Turn an Old Bike Into a Bathroom Counter (Super Cool!)
Turn an Old Door Frame Into a Coffee Table
Transform a Chair into a Towel Rack and Shelf
Turn An Old Bathtub Into a Love Seat (This would be great as lawn furniture. It’s already water proof, just get outdoor cushions)
Use Your Old Computer Tower as a Mail Box (I bet the mail carrier can’t help but chuckle every time he places mail in this one!)
Repurpose an Old Suitcase Into a Medicine Cabinet (Cute, if you have the keys, you can lock snoopy houseguests out. LOL)
Use Old Books to Create a Desk
(Wow! I wonder how many books that took?)
Turn Old Credit Cards Into Guitar Picks ( Play your way out of debt!)
Create a Window Cover Using Old Picture Slides. (Very cool)
Turn Old Suitcases Into Side Tables
Turn Old Wrenches Into Wall Hooks (I see this in a mechanic’s shop)
Up-cycle Old Mugs, Bottles and Bowls Into Light Fixtures
(The bottle lights are gorgeous!)
Use Old Picture Frame Corners Like Tiles (One of my favorites)
Use a Pipe with Valves as a Coat Rack (I can see this in a plumber’s house!)
The bicycle in the bathroom, the book barrier, the chair hanger and some of the other coat racks are brilliant. Who says that old people still can’t contribute?
I love art and beauty so I couldn’t pass this one up. I received this as an email that had been passed on and on so I cannot give credit to the original creator. It also had other pictures of common sense items like reusing CD containers and tubes of toilet paper as storage containers and the such, but I was especially impressed with the new twist on these beautiful keepsakes of yesteryear and cut the others out. (I made the comments in italics) Feel free to pass this on.
