The decorative items that people usually put in their homes are things that they have bought from stores or the souvenirs that they have collected over the years. For most people, decorating their home can be achieved by placing candles, picture frames, and dainty items around the house. Walls are usually designed and decorated using paintings, wallpapers, and wall art. But if one would want to find a unique and exciting way to design a home, a person can try out this unconventional idea of decorating a home. It can be applied in any room such as the living room, bathroom, bedroom, and many others.
When people talk about wall decorations, they would want to be able to achieve a design that is nice and unique. It would be great if people can make use of things around them to create decorative items in a home. Here is a great idea which can be used in any home. All that a person would need would be an old worn out skateboard that nobody in the household would want to make use of anymore.
So, instead of throwing away the skateboards that one has used in their youth, a person can make use of this to creatively make a homemade hook for the dining room, bathroom, or kitchen. This is a portion of the skateboard where the wheels are attached. Cutting this side of the skateboard and removing the wheels would enable a person to attach the flat side against the wall. The most interesting part of this design is the extension that can be seen protruding against the wall.
Going further, this recycled skateboard can be used on the wall to hang bags, hats, helmets, and coats. Compared to regular hooks that can be bought in stores, it would be very expensive to find decorative ones because plain colors are usually the ones being sold. With a skateboard for this purpose, one will be able to have a keepsake and at the same time, have a decorative and colorful design against the wall. The inspiring graphics that each skateboard has will never go to waste.
The skateboard that a person owns has definitely served its purpose in the past. Instead of throwing it away or letting it lie around the attic, one can also use it as a hook to hang the towel in the kitchen or the bathroom. Because the material used for skateboards is textured smoothly, one will not have to worry about not being able to make it stick to the wall. The nice texture of the flat side of the skateboard can easily be attached to the use of a regular hook adhesive. In the same way, one will not have to worry about hanging heavier items because it has been made with highly sturdy material.
The functional and creative minds of individuals will surely help them create more ways of recycling old skateboards. It can also be used as legs for a bar stool or attached to the wall horizontally as a shelf. So the next time that one thinks of throwing a skateboard away, these ideas would definitely help in beautifying a home and in lessening the things that people throw away.
