Is your garage cluttered with old things that you have been storing for years? Perhaps it is time to clean up and maybe you will find some items that you can use and give them a new life. We will show you inspiring and creative DIY upcycling ideas with which you can turn everyday objects into cool furniture and decoration pieces.
Cool DIY upcycling ideas – the many uses of old things
If you have an old ladder, do not throw it out! Simply grind the wood, coat it with varnish or paint it and use it as a shelf. Different tea cups can be transformed into lovely pendant lighting fixtures. Old car tires are easily turned into planter boxes, and old jeans will be an original decoration for the balcony as well as balcony planters. Paint cans can be also used for the garden. Just add soil and flower or herb seeds. There are many DIY upcycling ideas which will show you how to make cool wall hooks from just about anything.
Build original coffee tables – DIY upcycling ideas
Do you need a coffee table? No problem – check these DIY upcycling ideas, take a look around and look for old leather suitcases that you could use. Of course, they have to be thoroughly cleaned before you place them in your living room. Then you can either pile several suitcases one upon another, or build a small structure made of wood and it put the suitcase. Voila – your new coffee table is ready.
The second idea is even easier – you cut an old wine barrel in two, cover the barrel with a glass or wooden top and you have a nice coffee table for the living room, the balcony or the garden.
