With a little DIY know-how you can upcycle the old goodies in your kitchen. Here are a few ideas.
1. Hang it up
Kitchen instruments as lighting is bang on trend right now, but no need to pay designer prices. Drill a hole inthe base of a funky colander and hang over a bare light bulb — perfect in kitchens and laundries.
2. Utensil tidy
This brilliant idea has been stolen from a chic little French bistro. If a broken chair’s too well designed to throw away, why not use the back of it? We glued this to the wall, then screwed in some hooks to make a fab utensil rack.
3. Shabby-chic lighting
What do you do with old jelly and cake moulds when they become too tarnished to use? Well, just add a candle or tealight to create some mood lighting.
