20 Ways to Re-Use Your Old Stuff

All the Luck in the World took some cute little trinkets laying around the house and strung them from a painted tree branch to make a beautiful hanging decoration. This would be so beautiful to use as a mobile in a baby’s room!

    Hi may I know even if the tefrigerator is laid down, can the switch be still on? Is it working ?

      Hi Victor! If you click on the link included on the slide, it will provide you with the instructions. I apologize for any confusion!

    This shouldn’t work. Refrigerators need to remain upright to work effectively. If, you reorient the compressor to its upright position, it might work.

      It’s for an ice chest, a.k.a cooler… it’s not supposed to work as a refrigerator because it’s an “old” one, more than likely doesn’t work anyway. Imagine it not being plugged in and full of ice and you’ll understand the concept

    It can be used as an awesome deck cushion storage. You have to remove the freon though.

    There are no DIY instructions for this project. Just a bunch of advertisement links! Sounds like a great idea wish I could find the directions and plans. I would love to be able to use my old fridge for this instead of it taking up space at a dump somewhere.

    As a safety professional, I believe this is a VERY BAD IDEA unless you want to possibly kill a child or pet. Legally you’re required to remove entirely the door(s) of any non-serviceable refrigerator or freezer, to prevent a person becoming trapped and asphyxiated inside by the magnetic catches or mechanical latches that keep the doors closed while in use.

    IF YOU DO DECIDE TO DO THIS PROJECT:

    1) Make certain that the doors cannot become stuck in the down/closed position (and don’t forget that the pallet wood you attach will make the door even harder to open).

    2) Drill 1″-diameter holes in the fridge liner to allow air to enter; that way if a child or pet does become trapped, they’ll be able to breathe — and you’ll be able to hear them scream, cry or bark/meow, hopefully before they starve to death or go insane with fear.

    Umm … NO!!!! The “broken umbrella toy” idea is a really bad idea, maybe even more dangerous than the fridge-to-icebox conversion.

    The ribs in most umbrellas are wires — stiff, sharp wires — that can easily poke through the relatively flimsy fabric umbrellas are made of.

    So … take one or two small children; give them an old umbrella to play with; then see how long before at least one of the ribs has poked through the fabric and become a viciously sharp weapon suitable for poking out eyes, lancing eardrums, skewering body parts, stabbing pets, or creating any other number of catastrophes.

    This list needs a thinking person to review it and delete some of the dumber ideas!
