Do you have a few kitchen items in your cabinets that are collecting cobwebs and taking up too much space? Perhaps they’ve seen better days or they’ve been replaced by new and better versions. Whatever your reason for not wanting to use them may be, we think you may just want to dust them off and let them see the light of day after you find out what you can do them!

Browse through these 4 repurposed kitchen items to see how a little imagination and artistic ability can give new life to old, outdated cooking tools.


1. Kitchen Colanders

Now this is truly a bright idea! Why buy expensive kitchen pendants when you can create cute and quirky light fixtures with only a few coats of paint and a drill?

2. Rolling Pins

Do you have more rolling pins than you know what to do with? This idea uses an old chopping board and some wall hooks to make a beautifully decorative and practical kitchen piece. We love how the rolling pin handles are painted for a bold and vibrant effect!

3. Kitchen Graters

If you’re going for a farmhouse feel in your kitchen, then this repurposed kitchen item would fit right in. Who would have thought that rusty old graters could look so attractive?

4. Chopping Boards

Recently installed a new granite or quartz worktop and no longer need your chopping board? You’ll be surprised by how easy it is to transform it into a tablet holder using a scrabble letter rack, wooden wedges and wood glue (watch this short tutorial to learn how to make this repurposed kitchen item).
