Here an amazing idea how you can reuse old stuff in a completely different way than it was used before. You can paint it and use as elements of decor. I want to show you two examples but there are plenty other things that you can make useful again.
The first example shows how you can use an old colander or a metal bucket as lampshades for pendant lamps on a kitchen. The second one shows how you can turn old gardening tools into cloth hangers. For both transformations you need several cans of enamel, acrylic paint, brushes, nails and a hammer. I won’t describe the whole process because it’s quite simple and all you need is an idea.
