Beautiful Bath Tubs

People have been upcycling and repurposing items since dinosaurs walked the earth… almost.

Turning jam jars into candle holders and old marigolds into rubber bands are some of the examples most commonly seen. But what can be done with an old bath tub? We’ve perused the world wide web to find the most creative examples of bath tubs reimagined. Here are our favourite indoor and outdoor DIY possibilities…

With a bit of time, effort and imagination all sorts of everyday household objects that have come to the end of their useful life can be turned into something else. For example, the drum of a broken washing machine makes a great fire basket for a DIY patio heater.

Upcycling and repurposing is a great way to reduce the amount of waste being dumped in landfills, which is good for the environment. Impressive design adaptations like the ones pictured also give you a chance to show off your creativity, making you the envy of friends and family.

Breathing new life into old items and saving them from the bin can be a very cost-effective way to introduce some contemporary artistic flair to your home interior too. Nothing adds character like a truly one-off piece of furniture – it’s bound to be a talking point for your guests – hopefully for the right reasons!
