Use old colanders as wall accents

If you have a plain wall at home, you can add life to the space by recycling old colanders. Simply paint them in different colors -- make sure that these colors go well with your home's overall palette, and install them. You may also use them to cover your lighting fixtures as seen in the photo.

Recycle an old metal bucket into a lamp

To save on energy, you may opt to have an energy-efficient lamp as lighting in your dining area. You can easily transform it into a conversation piece by concealing it with an old metal bucket. Ask for professional help when it comes to wiring and connection.

Display photos using clothespin.

Dedicate one wall of the living area for your memorable snapshots. What you'll need are the following: An old frame, string, and clothespins. Attach the string to the frame and hang the photos. It will be an instant vintage-inspired decor.

Use corkboards.

Installing a corkboard on one area of the house is an easy and affordable way to display photos and important reminders. All you'll need are tons of pushpins! You may even turn this wall into your vision board.
