Container Made From Recycled Material
This container is a handcrafted product made with coiled paper in Vietnam. It’s a fair trade product made from recycled magazines. It’ll brighten the décor in your home and perhaps even become a conversation piece with guests. Imagine creating your own conversation piece after taking a look at these items that are incredible for repurposing.
Bamboo is one of the most durable flooring options out there and is one of the most environmentally friendly features for a home. Bamboo doesn’t need pesticides to grow and it grows quickly enough that bamboo forests can be replanted in a few years. These are the pros and cons of bamboo floors you need to know.
Recycled Glass Lamp
This lamp from Lamp Works is made completely from recycled glass and features a natural burlap shade to create an eco-friendly décor piece that will fit into nearly every home.
Adopt a Few Houseplants
Instead of tossing that cardboard milk or orange juice carton in the recycling bin, cut off the top, wrap it with fabric and use it as a planter for herbs or flowers. For more repurposing ideas, visit Cut Out + Keep.
Broken Table Legs
This woodworker took some broken table legs and attached them to a slice of maple and created a small stool. The stool would be a great addition to a kitchen pantry where you may need help with hard-to-reach items or as an extra side table in a den.
Sewing Machine Table
This DIYer took an old sewing cabinet, attached a shelf unit, covered the shelves with paper and painted it red. This furniture hack can now be used as a dining room hutch or extra storage in a kitchen.
Ladder Pot Rack
Storing pots and pans can be a challenge because they are bulky and take up a lot of space. Use an old ladder or even a wheel to hang pots from your kitchen ceiling.
If you come across some old window shutters at a resale shop or garage sale, consider using them as a DIY room divider. Just paint or stain and add some hinges. You can get a similar look with salvaged closet doors, too.
