You know those vintage door knobs that many people would rather send to recycling due to not knowing what to do with them? In my philosophy, anything broken or deemed old-fashioned can still be reused. The old vintage door knobs you throw away can be repurposed in many ways from creating unique drawer pulls to making impressive wall décor. It’s all about developing a mindset of repurposing things for more interesting uses. Here are a few ideas on how you can reuse old door knobs.
Create Unique Drawer Knobs
This is probably one of the most common ways of reusing vintage door knobs. If you haven’t thought about it, vintage door knobs make very unique drawer knobs, especially for your bedroom drawers. Simply replace the all-too-common knobs that come with drawers with fine polished vintage door knobs to enhance the style of your bedroom.
Hang Towels, Coats, Bags, and More
If the usual coat hangers and racks have become an eyesore, then change their style with vintage door knobs. These beautiful knobs can be used to hang almost anything that needs to be hung when not in use. You can use vintage door knobs to hang:
- Towels in your bedroom
- Pots and pans in your kitchen
- Towels in the bathroom
- Bags or purses anywhere in your house
- Or anything else you can think of!
The knobs not only provide a functional use but enhance the style of your décor too.
Use Doorknobs as Wall Art
For those blessed with some level of creativity, you can use door knobs collected from a previous home redecoration to display an artistic piece of wall art. You may need to get a nice frame from a thrift store to make the vintage door knob wall art.
Create a Unique Photo Holder
Pictures preserve our fond memories of the past. You may need to display them in a more original way using a photo holder made of vintage door knobs. You can make this artistic holder using a piece of wire wrapped around the door knob. Add a touch of paint or attach a variety of colored beads around the holder to make it even more unique. Creatively crafted picture holders enhance the style of your décor. You can use vintage door knobs to make beautiful card holders and other décor pieces.
Make Curtain Rod Ends
You don’t need to spend money buying curtain rod ends if you have a few vintage door knobs. Build yourself unique curtain rods using vintage door knobs and create a classic style in your living room. The curtains even look great when attached to shiny door knobs.
Create Wedding Table Numbers
Impress your guests in your wedding with decorative table numbers made of vintage door knobs. This is a great style for those outdoor wedding receptions or just any other party.
