Old things and their second life in the country: we make crafts from unnecessary trash

The old things that accompanied us throughout some part of our life cannot be easily thrown away. You get used to them, and it seems that they must still come in handy. Maybe, at least with some of the objects dear to the heart you really should not part? Putting off the final decision in a long box, we take everything that is unnecessary to the garage or to the cottage. So, so that your country house does not turn, in the end, into a place of accumulation of various trash, we advise you to immediately come up with a new life for old things. Some interesting ideas we bring to your attention.

When your favorite jeans are small

Jeans fail unexpectedly, and most of them, as a rule, look even more beautiful. But some attrition or other defect eloquently confirms that this thing can no longer be worn. A connoisseur of this item of clothing may have several such pairs. One of the non-trivial ideas for their further use is to create a hammock.

Creating such a hammock will not take much time, but how much pleasure there will be from its use! And you can conjure over its decoration for pleasure, showing your imagination in full

The ideal option is when you already have the old standard hammock, but it is time to update it. This is where jeans come in handy. But keep in mind that you need sufficiently strong products, which it is simply a pity to tear on rags. We use fasteners, ropes and other lifting parts from the previous hammock, they usually last longer than the cloth.

We sew several pairs with a thick and very strong thread. Guides and ropes should be fixed in the same way as in the previous hammock. Jeans trimming can be used by constructing them like pockets or handbags. Sewn to the side, they can shelter a bottle of water, a book, glasses, sunscreen and other little things that will be useful to lovers of relaxation in a hammock.

Old bathtub - a storehouse of new ideas

You made repairs in the apartment and, of course, decided that you no longer needed the old bath. But, as it turns out, it can become a real decoration of your country life. It remains only to calculate the options in which quality it can be used.

Idea # 1 - a small cozy pond

If you were planning to diversify the landscape of your site with a small pond, then the old bath will be very welcome. Choose a suitable place, make a marking based on the size of the bath, and dig a hole. The drain holes on the side and bottom can be closed with a plug made of wood, wrapping it with a cloth.

A small bathtub as a pond looks very attractive even if it remains white. Anyway, over time, if you do not clean it on purpose, it will no longer stand out

Some people prefer to pre-coat the surface of the tank with dark paint inside to make the pond look more natural. Along the perimeter, the finished reservoir is decorated with stones, lanterns, figures and plants. Will look great incense, ferns, bells, irises and loosestrife.

To decorate the pond, you can use not only pebbles and plants. Decorative figures, lights and even fountains will come in handy

Idea # 2 - an original and stylish sofa

Furniture in the country should be not only comfortable, but also durable. If we work on the side of the bath with a grinder, we get exactly what we need. We process the edges of the slice, cover the product with paint, and then close the slice with a fringing. Elegant decorative pillows, like the finishing touch, will bring the sofa to a state of full readiness.

Does it look like this stylish sofa had a bathtub in its past life? But now it can be left even in the open air without fear of rain. But it’s better to take pillows with you.

Idea # 3 - flowerbed bath

A bathtub is a finished flowerbed. It is enough to fill it with soil, not forgetting about drainage, and you can plant plants. Decorate such a bed should be subject to the overall design of the site. You can use mosaics, paints or any overhead elements. Get creative and this flower bed will fit perfectly into any conditions proposed for it.

A snow-white bathtub, filled with foam, like petunias, does not need special decoration. However, the white figures of poultry and animals look quite appropriate.

Idea # 4 - funny cow

At the same time, a bath can be functional and decorative if it is used as a water tank, which is always useful in the country. Small additions will make the old thing a source of wonderful mood for everyone who sees it. By the way, since the water in this tank will periodically change, you can use it as a pool for children.

Such a cow is needed not so much as a pool or water tank, although these functions are also very important. She is especially attracted as a source of positive, positive emotions.

Pipe flower design

It is not necessary to use old pipes for such a structure, but to make it from what was being prepared for discharge is doubly great! The resulting design can rightfully be called a vertical flower bed. It is also important to find a suitable wall that it could decorate so as not to violate the general style of the site. Although such a structure does not have to be done against the wall. It will look great as a partition dividing the site into zones.

With the help of appropriate decor you can create real miracles. In order for this flower bed to decorate your site, it will take quite a bit:

  • sewer plastic pipes;
  • standard and corner joints;
  • wall mounts;
  • paint;
  • ordinary country tool.

By the way, you can paint and support wall. Just imagine how this structure will look if you plant ampelous plants in it!

News from the world of old tires

What they didn’t do from old tires in the country! We were admired by swan families, flowerbeds and flowerpots made of this rubber, which has already practically served its purpose. But it is impossible to resist and not to share this option of its useful use. Be sure that such a Batmobile will not leave indifferent any boy.

We will need five tires, an old plastic chair, a steering wheel and the material from which the frame and base will be built. You can install all the elements of the structure on a welded metal frame. In an alternative embodiment, the parts can be mounted independently on pieces of a corner driven into the ground. Ultimately, it doesn't matter which manufacturing technology you choose. The construction design is much more important, which should be given maximum attention.

We warn the adult part of the family that this toy is truly dangerous. She is addictive and passionate desire to return to childhood in the fathers of the family

The old trampoline is right there.

Trampoline is a hobby that can wonderfully entertain your child until you get bored. It differs from any other abandoned toy except in size. But for us it is this parameter of this that will be of key importance. See what a wonderful wigwam you can make from a trampoline.

Even if the new structure will be called simply a hanging bed, it will not be empty. The obvious advantage of such a bed will be its remoteness from the surface of the earth: insects will not annoy you, dampness and moisture are not threatened.

Such a hanging bed is convenient precisely because of its remoteness from the ground. Firstly, it will be convenient to get up from it, secondly, it can be protected from crawling and flying insects, thirdly, cold from the soil will not affect the health of sleeping

What is growing in your country?

Old, but such beautiful dishes - this is the reason for creating amazing country jewelry made of glass. Making such a glass flower with your own hands is not as difficult as it seems. The general principle is as follows: you need to choose utensils in the same color scheme or, conversely, contrasting with each other. Assembly should be made from a larger part that depicts the petals of a flower, to a smaller one that mimics a floral corolla. As a stem, you can use a hollow metal rod. Such a flower can play the role of a flashlight at night.

These are man-made flowers. You can make such beauty yourself if you have extra dishes that you can sacrifice to decorate your garden.

Flowering Garden Music

Musical instruments that have served their age are simply impossible to send to the trash. The hand does not rise. But this is not a reason to turn your home into a warehouse of old things! You can turn tools into flower beds.

Musical instruments are especially sorry to throw away, so you need to make every effort to protect them from the weather and the negative effects of moisture

It is only necessary to carefully process the wood in order to protect it from decay. Repeat this procedure will have no less than once every two years. In the video below you will see a waterfall built from a piano. This complex design requires special protection of the internal parts of the instrument from water. Otherwise, this waterfall will not have to please its owner for long.

Fences and gates from old rubbish

Sooner or later, garden tools fail. And then, when it becomes impossible to use them for their intended purpose, you can build from them, for example, a gate, a fence or even an original garden flower in fear of garden pests and thieves.

And yet, you can make a garden scarecrow out of unnecessary clothes. Read about it: postroiki / ogorodnoe-chuchelo-svoimi-rukami.html

This agricultural equipment looks very organically, not only on the gate, but even as a flower: with a hint of retaliation to anyone who dares to encroach on someone else's property

Talking about the new life of old things is simply impossible to stop. Probably because the human fantasy has no boundaries. And it is wonderful that in us the desire to surround ourselves with beautiful things that bring positiveness and happiness to our home does not disappear.
