  1. concerned about where the discarded materials go – it seems like the minimalist purging approach just adds to the overall waste stream. These are good ways to make sure that discards are actually used and not just put in the landfills?

  2. Wow. That’s a lot of clothes hangers

  3. Brilliant,its always the simplest of ideas that are the best!

    sweet! i especially like the bottle lights, the drum lights, the bulb candles, the hat lights, and the bike sink! the bottle opener purse thing is creative but seems like it would be really scratchy and hurt. and I love pianos and have always wanted one my whole life so i dont think id be able to bring myself to do that one as much as i loooooove that idea! it’d have to be unrepairable by all means but then hell yeah id love a piano shelf!!

  18. That Hanger Room Divider is awesome looking but would require many many hangers and lots of time and patience!

  19. very creative 🙂

  20. Love this article!

  21. suitcase chair. amazing

  22. Just great ideas… but the open closet made of chairs is ideal!! Love it 😀

  23. wow those are very creative way to use house-hold itoms. Thats incredible,who would have thought you could have used a latter as a bookshelf or a suitcase as a chair. Amazing! I wish i thought of it.

    Yes great! Don’t know which idea I like most!

    to be continued, please!

  48. Actually… it’s impossible to tell with the bowler one, the spoon one is using LEDs (look at the photo with all the materials), the drum kit appears to e using LED, and the bottle one looks more like neon than incandescent. The only one that is obviously incandescent is the one that turned a light bulb into an oil lamp.

  49. …The wall thingy with the hangers just seems like it’d lead into a large mess..

  50. Great artwork. Tips are too good to make useless things into useful. Creativity

  51. Fabulous Art… Very Creative Thinking

  52. I found some coole ideas for my room

  53. Every one of the lamps and light fixtures are using old and obsolete incandescent light bulbs. Wise up, the industry left these inefficient, energy wasting bulbs behind a long time ago. LEDs are the way to go.

  54. awesome !! great idea to recycle

  55. wait wait, I take it back….they form to make the purse in the pic above, not just a weird 4-tab combination…I get it, carry on…..

  56. LOL why was the thing with the soda tabs included in this…so random and useless haha…the others = amazing tho

  57. amazing tips! Thanks!
