Radiators Repurposed Upcycled Recycled are Preserved Treasures

LilacsNDreams is sharing more creativity with some of those old house radiators. As we know there is always some way, or something to do with things being removed from our homes. Better yet, find a way to upcycle them as they sit within our homes too. 

You see this quite often in older homes is the old radiators. What do you do with them? When I was younger I use to hate them, and thought them useless. Now that I am older . . . LOL:) I realize they were a good use for their time, some people still use them, many others either throw them, and then there are many many others who will find uses for them.  The love of creativity by using something old, and making it work for more modern times. 

If you think about it there are many things that you could do with them. In most homes today they do not work anymore. They just sit there. Sometimes they stay, and sometimes they can be removed. For those that stay in the home what could you possibly do with them? I have seen others share ideas with putting glass tops on them, and making them larger tables for in their homes. Many like to cover the radiators where they are, and it looks really good when done too. Make a book case over them, use some scrap wood to make a radiator cover, make a cute little cocktail station, preserve them by using them in your gardens, make benches out of them for outside or on your porches, and the possibilities are endless actually.  Don't forget that painting things is always a good project to do too. Being creative, isn't it fun?

Who would have guessed right? I mean I never thought of redoing radiators into something else myself. I so enjoy seeing new life given to old pieces that can still be used with our modern ways of things. 

So, what do you think? Have you thought of getting rid of any old radiators yourself? Hopefully after getting some ideas from here you will see there are some possibilities as always. 

Thanks so much for sharing your time with LilacsNDreams today. See you all again soon!
