I'm starting this thread to house a collection of neat ideas I find around the internet. You're welcome to add your own found treasures.
Here's a great way to use that wasted space under a stairway:
Tired of having to clean up all that dust when you drill holes in the wall? Place a folded a Post-It note under it to catch all the dust particles. Have multiple holes to drill, just move the Post-it catch-all.
Need a place to stick stuff? Stick a suction cup to a tennis ball, cut a slit in the ball and you can now stick it anywhere to hold your stuff.
Got an old scrub brush you're not using? Make a desk accessory out of it.
Are your favorite jeans too big or too small, have holes in the knees? Make a pocket pillow out of them and get a place to tuck the remote too.
Dominoes collecting dust around your house? Need a clock?
There's more than one way to use a book-end.
Have a leaky canoe? Make a coffee-table out of it.
Sign Language coat hooks from silverware:
Got caught in the rain while jogging? Remember your rubbers!
Want to add pizazz to an old pair of sandals?
Get your toddler ready for school, make a desk out of their old crib.
Nature's origami roses
Got lots of leftover plastic spoons from a party and a plastic water jug?
No more skateboarding? Make yourself a garden bench.
Hate those cheap hangers that come with clothing from the discount stores? Put the clips to better use.
With this coat and hat rack, you're all set for the chorus line or a crowd of winter coats.
More great uses for all those dusty dominoes.
