Funky Upcycling Ideas for your Kitchen.
I am a huge fan of upcycling.
I am not so creative, so I love it when I see what other people come up with.
More and more people are embracing upcycling as we think about our environment and try to reduce what we consume. Attempting to not buy new things but make do with what is already available to us is such a good habit to get into.
Here are some of the funkiest ideas I have come across for upcycling in your kitchen!
Old flan tins as frames! You could put anything in here really. I am thinking some vintage food posters would look fabulous. From Home Restyler who saw it in a magazine.
Old grater as a utensil holder. See if you can find an old one from the op shop, turn it upside down and attach to the wall. From Pinterest.
A bike wheel as a pot rack. How cool is this? It rotates as well so you can access your favourite pot. You could spray paint it to match your kitchen or just rock the industrial style look. From Etsy.
Wrap containers as gift boxes. What a totally perfect way to give home-made treats! You could also use it to store paintbrushes or stationery too. From meredith.com.
Old forks as note holders. Either attach them to the wall or glue a magnet on to put on the fridge. Use antique forks from an op shop for a really cute look. From Belle Maison.
Glass goblet and plate into a cake stand. Very cute and not that hard to do. I wouldn’t even paint it – just a la natural would be nice. Full tutorial at Factory Direct Craft.
Old silver trays as memo boards. These are very easy to find in op shops and can be spray painted, painted with chalk board paint or just left as is. From Pinterest.
Old rake used as wine glass holder. Such a clever idea! Now to find a funky old rusted rake head from somewhere and screw it to the wall. Details at Tattered Style.
Kitchen utensils as a windchime. This is so whimsical and sweet. I actually have an old cutlery windchime which I love. Details at RR Design.
Blender into a lamp. If you are a little bit more experienced in DIY you can make this. I am in awe! Check it out and download the tutorial at Instructables.
