Before you throw anything away, really think about it. For example, if you’ve finished burning a candle that comes in a big glass jar, don’t waste it. Instead, drain out the leftover wax and use it as storage. This is called “upcycling.” Upcycling is “the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.”
And it’s not just for people who love arts and crafts. These ideas are worth trying (and will make your home a whole lot cooler).
1.) Using an old ladder as a bookshelf.
2.) Convert folding chairs into a shelf and closet.
3.) Turning an old 2 litre bottle into a broom.
4.) Using old bottles as shades for pendant lamps.
5.) Make a lamp with hot glue and disposable spoons.
6.) Using old skateboard decks to make a child’s picnic table.
7.) Making shelves out of old books.
8.) Turn old bottle caps into cool tea lights.
9.) Convert a discarded piano into a very cool shelf.
10.) This sink you can make out of a bicycle.
11.) A portable bagel holder made out of CD/DVD tower case.
12.) Make your wooden fence a little more private with glass marbles.
13.) Create guitar pics out of credit cards (or anything else).
14.) Use your favourite, old cassette tape as a coin purse.
15.) Use that old, vintage suitcase for a cool chair.
16.) If that old TV doesn’t work, transform it into an aquarium.
17.) If you don’t like wearing hats, make them into lamps.
18.) Transform classic tennis rackets into mirrors.
Upcycling is good for the environment and it looks cool too.
