Upcycling Storage Shelves / Réutiliser des tablettes de rangement

Inévitablement notre réfrigérateur a succombé. Avant de l’envoyer dans le monde du recyclage j’ai eu l’idée de garder les tablettes et essayer de concevoir et construire un présentoir pour pots de fleurs. Ensuite m’est venue l’idée de les utiliser dans mon propre atelier !

Inevitably our fridge died. Before sending it to another world I came up with the idea of keeping the shelves and try to design and build a stand to display flower pots. Then came the idea of using them in my own workshop !


Tel que montré, deux tablettes avaient les dimensions appropriées pour deux de mes bases d’outils mobiles.

As shown, two shelves were just the appropriate size for two of my mobile tool bases.

Afin de maintenir les tablettes en place, j’ai simplement enfilé un fil d’acier aux deux extrémités d’un même côté.

For the shelves to stay put, I simply tied them up with wire on either side of one end.

De plus, j’ai également gardé les tiroirs à légumes en plastique pour les utiliser comme bacs dans mon atelier. Je garde toutefois les deux autres tablettes pour un présentoir à pots de fleurs, et ainsi tout le monde sera content.

Lorsque le BBQ au gaz et la cuisinière vont mourir je vais garder les grilles et les tablettes du four pour des usages similaires. Un rien me satisfait !

Besides that, I also kept the plastic vegetable drawers to use as bins in my shop. However, I’m keeping the remaining two shelves to display flower pots and everyone will be happy.

When the gas BBQ and the range will expire, I’ll keep all grills and oven shelves for similar purposes. Such small thing makes me happy !

    Thank you for you kind words Ray. As Serge mentioned, being happy and contented in whatever we do, whether it’s work or play, being happy is what matters most of all.
    Without that emotion in our lives we are just empty shells, existing in our world with no real purpose to our lives. The fact that we have chosen wood working as either our work or our hobby, to do so with little contentment or satisfaction in our chosen endeavours, makes living in our little part of the world, a very dull and uninteresting place indeed.

    All the very best,

    Bob from Down Under.

    HI Serge – I have used scraps of wire closet shelving the same way that were left over from a closet project at home. You can often find short pieces in the trash at construction sites.

    • Hi Dennis, That is a good idea too. And those wire shelvings are very strong. As you mentioned, to be looked for in the trash on road sides. Thanks for sharing.

      Best,
