I was at a thrift store recently (no surprise there) and saw a bunch of old tools. I knew there must be all kinds of ways to upcycle old tools, but off the top of my head, I couldn’t come up with any. I left them there for another bargain hunter.
Naturally I came home and searched for really cool ways to do new things with the rusty, weather worn tools I saw and I was not disappointed. Next time, I won’t hesitate to buy them and I’ll be after seeing this list, you won’t either.
Rustic Flower Box
Of course a wonderfully rusted and chippy old tool box should be a beautiful flower box! Why didn’t I think of that?
Those old nuts and bolts can be turned into an educational tool for the kiddos. This is a really clever idea.
While you are going through the old coffee cans filled with nuts & bolts, how about creating some drawer pulls?
This garden arbor is an imaginative & beautiful way to upcycle old tools. It would make any outdoor space inviting.
It seems like I see old wrenches everywhere I look. I never would have thought to do this with them!
