Upcycled Treasures



One person's junk is truly another person's treasure. These all came from my Upcycled & Repurposed Pinterest board.


Got old tires in the garage or shed? Look what you can do with them. Paint them a perky color and turn them into a base for an outdoor table.

And speaking of tires...



This one just blows me away. How someone could have even conceived of this bicycle being a bathroom vanity/sink is beyond me!

Paint those old trash cans so they'll look pretty and serve a purpose. This little couple would be the darlings of the yard.

Old drawers can serve a myriad of duties they weren't meant for. I've hung them on the wall and put art in them. Keep those old drawers and get creative!

It's almost spring. Do you need a potting bench? Look at a tag sale for one of these and you've got it made in the shade.

I never met an old sewing machine treadle base I didn't absolutely love. I've been using them for years, both indoors and out.


Old cutting boards can serve a new purpose. Storing things in the kitchen. And it's already got a hole to hang it by.

I'd need serious help with this old bucket turned mason jar light. I have no idea how they did this. But it sure is innovative.

Got some non-glass mugs you aren't using? They can be turned into storage and become a decorative part of your kitchen.

I'm pretty smitten with this domino clock. I don't think this idea would be all that hard to make.

Some of you don't even recall these old TVs we used to have. Most are in the landfill. But if you want to have an aquarium, it's a great place to put it.

You know all those little things in the drawer that get lost in the mix and tangled up? You can organize them with this idea.

And last but certainly not least, I love old doors. I wish I'd kept some I had in my home at one time that I decoupaged. I'm always on the look out for more. 

Add shelves and a light and you've got a nifty piece of furniture. 

Don't you just love junk turned into upcycled treasures? 

I know this is kind of off-topic, but I also found this frugal tip for growing scallions you might be interested in.

  13. Love all this stuff. Someday, I will have an entry and make a hall tree from my Grandmother's front door. When I had the store and turned junk furniture into cowboy furniture, I always looked for stuff that was on its way to the dump. It was so much fun.

  14. I don't know which project I like the most. So many great ideas. I do love the dominoes. Reminds me of the many games I played with my Grandmother.

  16. There is going to be a domino shortage once everyone sees that clock. That is so cool. So are the other ideas. This was a fun post.

  17. I love the watering can of course being a gardener I would right?

    But the idea is so cute...I could see it outside for a outdoor shower no problem. And I have a old door I've been wanting to put a window box on...one day.

  26. I love upcycled... it's truly how I live. Though I have to admit it, some of these ideas would be lost on me. ;)
    Old tires and painted barrels... look like something I could definitely do!
    Give me a cheap gallon of Ooops! paint and I'm set to go.
