Turn Your Trash Into Treasure With These Clever Repurposing Projects.

Many people mistakenly throw out objects the moment they're damaged. Just because something is broken, doesn't mean it's no longer useable. There are so many projects that'll repurpose all those broken items into new and better things.

Also, if you're the type to hoard a lot of your belongings, a lot of these projects will definitely be useful to you. Why keep damaged items in storage when you can transform them into something you can actually use?

Outdoor Ice Chest

Broken fridges may seem like a hopeless cause, but they can actually be transformed into an outdoor ice chest. You might need professional help to remove all of the electrical parts.

Bulletin Board

Are you planning on getting a new bed? If you are, use your old mattress springs to create a cool and useful bulletin board. It's a project that you can customize however you want.

Do you have some old vinyl records that are too scratched up to work anymore? Instead of throwing them away, try turning them into these cool bookends by heating and then bending the bottom of the records!
