7 Creative Repurpose Ideas

Well, you probably have a lot of old stuff just lying around your house. It’s not doing anything but taking up space, but you’re either too busy, sentimental or just have more important things to deal with. Well if you’re looking for a little inspiration or a new DIY project, here are some creative ways to repurpose, reuse and upcycle old things. There’s a pretty broad range in this list but hopefully a handful jump out and spark an idea for you and your home!

Though you can use your tech to fix all kinds of home issues, owning a lot of gear can create more problems—especially when it comes to the cables that connect your devices. Fortunately, you have a number of ways to tidy up the jumble of wires behind your desk that don't involve buying overpriced "cable organizers". Take a bunch of binder clips that are made for holding sheaves of paper, clip them on the back or side of your desk, and then thread your cables through them.

5. Turn Old Bulletin Boards into a Jewelry Organizer

Have you been thinking about accessorizing your outfits with a burst of color by choosing just the right jewelry pieces? One category of stuff happens to be jewelry. It’s been living in a drawer in my bathroom, which means that most of it never sees the light of day because I forget that I even own it. The solution? A bulletin board, of course!

6. Use Post-It Notes as a Collector when Drilling

7. Use Old Lego Pieces As a Key Holder

7 Creative Repurpose Ideas
Repurpose Legos to make a key organizer so that you’ll never again be blocked out of the house—get it? Start by fixing a small Lego base plate to a convenient spot on the wall. Then either poke a hole into a regular Lego block using a bradawl or find a piece with a built-in opening through which your key ring can slide.
