Here at Cherry Hill Waste, we concentrate most on ensuring that we provide professional recycling services. However, upcycling is another great way to ensure you’re reusing old material that may otherwise find itself down at the dump. It’s common to use old wood pallets as benches and chairs nowadays, but here are some more bizarre ideas to inspire you.
Skip Rooms in The Garden
Our other speciality here is skip hire and, if you find yourself with your own skip that you don’t know what to do with, you could make great use of it at home. With a bit of care, attention and elbow grease, you can turn a humble skip into a living area within your garden. Simply give it a lick of paint, cut out a section to walk through at the front, attach an awning overhead to protect against the sun and rain and there you have it! The space could feature a table and chairs or even become a bar!
Old Kitchen Utensils
Have you got a load of old saucepan lids that you no longer need? These could be easily repurposed as excellent coat hangers by attaching them to a strip of wood. Use the same principle for cutlery to create plenty of unique coat hangers or find an old colander and create a brand new lampshade!
Old clothes can be used for almost anything with some needle and thread. Do you have an old pair of socks? You could create a new pair of trousers for your newborn. Bowler hats and top hats can quite easily become lampshades and old jeans could be turned into a new handbag.
Shelves Using Astonishing Materials
Finally, you can create an impact in your home by using odd materials to create new shelving units. Consider hammering sections of an old ladder into the wall to create more shelving space or even gut out an old grand piano and use the natural sections as shelving space.
