creative_home_upcycling_ideas_featured

Are you looking to buy new furniture? Maybe a new shelf or a new lamp? Well, before you start online shopping or window shopping for these items, why not see if you can save yourself money by upcycling.

Upcycling is a new trend that is starting to gain momentum. It’s known as creative reuse, and the idea is to transform unused and unwanted products and materials into something useful. Think of it as a creative adventure. The sky is the limit when it comes to upcycling, and here at Shareably, we have seen some ideas and creations that we would have never thought was possible. For example, we have featured creative ways to reuse empty toilet paper rolls or old window door shutters on Shareably in the past.

We have compiled some of our favorite upcycling hacks in this post. Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Please SHARE these unique hacks with everyone you know. Upcycling will help keep the world nice and clean.

Create a neat ‘hat lamp’

If you find an old-fashioned top hat lying around your house, then try this out. Create a unique lighting fixture that is both classy and useful!

Mini closet using folding chairs

Hang old wooden folding chairs on the wall. When you unfold them, they provide very useful shelf space as well as a rod to hang clothes. Personally, I use this to help hang-dry clothes after I wash them!

Create bookshelf using old books

If you happen to not know what to do with a few books, then try to nail them to the wall so that you can create a bookshelf with a book. Nifty, right?

Wrench Coat Hanger

Wine Bottle Chandelier

But if you happen to a serious wine drinker, then try a chandelier rather than a few lamps.

Bottle cap candles

Save the leftover wax from burned out candles and re-melt them into bottle caps. Then purchase some cheap wicks online and wah-lah, you have just created a few more candles!
