Are you in the middle of a kitchen spring clean? Do you want to get rid of a few kitchen items that you no longer need? Before you think of throwing them away, you may want to consider repurposing them. You’ll find that there are many uses for a single item if you just spend a few moments in creative contemplation. But in case you find it difficult to get your creative juices flowing, we’ve cherry-picked our favourite repurposed kitchen items to help inspire you. Take a look at these fun ideas below to see how you can turn an old, outdated cooking tool into something cute and quirky.
1. Kitchen Colanders
Want to add a fun and playful charm to your kitchen? Colander pendants are sure to do the trick. You can easily recreate this lighting idea with a few colourful coats of paint and a drill.
2. Rolling Pins
This repurposed kitchen item is what you call organised art! An old chopping board and some wall hooks are all it takes to make this beautifully decorative and practical kitchen piece.
3. Kitchen Graters
We think this repurposed kitchen item would be ideal for a country-styled design. Although we’ll admit, we never imagined that rusty old graters could be so stylish!
4. Chopping Boards
If you use your tablet to read through recipes while you cook, then you may like the idea of making a tablet stand for your kitchen. You’ll be surprised by how easy it is to transform an old chopping board into a tablet holder using a scrabble letter rack, wooden wedges and wood glue (watch this short tutorial to learn how to make this repurposed kitchen item).
