Before you throw away your old things and regret later, read this. There is an emotional value for everything that you own or you once owned but what if you never have to throw away things you are emotionally attached to but don’t know what to do with them anymore?
1. Classy pendant lamps made out of old glass bottles (most probably liquor bottles).
All you need is – a glass cutter, hot glue, stable hanging sticks that are heavy enough to hold the bottles and of course, you need yellow bulbs (please no LED lights).
2. Turn your old bath tub into a sofa couch.
You can do wonders with old things. If you’re remaking your bathroom, don’t throw away your old bathtub, recycle it. Cut it into half and get pretty cushions, mattresses, legs, etc. to make a beautiful color combination with your bathtub.
3. Old drums turned into a unique chandelier.
Look at the guy above and below working on it and follow their foot steps. If you’re a music lover, this chandelier will reflect your personality in a jiffy. Do not throw your old drum set away because it can get emotionally draining.
4. Wooden fence decorated with colourful glass marbles.
If you have preserved these glass marbles since your childhood years, it’s time you make use of them by making your home’s wooden fence look more private by decorating it with these marbles. The fence will look outstanding when the sunlight reflects on these marbles.
5. Use loads and loads of hangers to construct this room divider.
If you have a lot of time in your hands and you are creative like that, buy loads of hangers or collect all the (colorful) hangers you have decided to dispose of over the years and create this spellbinding masterpiece. It is a room divider that was actually constructed by two Portuguese designers -Diogo Agular and Teresa Otta.
6. Use car tires in the most distinguished ways possible.
Your tire got spoilt or punctured or you see tires thrown around your house A LOT? Don’t throw them away because you’ll lose out on an opportunity to recycle them. You just have to color these tires to make them look personal and funky. After that, you can just go on filling whatever you want to in these tires depending upon how you want to use them – stool chair, dustbin or as flower pots in the garden.
7. Turn hats into lamps.
If you’ve been gifted caps or you already own caps that you don’t wear, get a little creative with them. Don’t waste them.
8. And you can even make a lamp with disposable spoons.
Following is all you need to create the above-displayed beauty:
9. Folding chairs can be turned into shelves and closet.
