Repurposed Garden Rakes – 7 DIY Projects

Don’t throw away those old tools, because they’ve repurposed garden rakes in some very cool ways! It used to be when the rake got rusty or the handle broke, we tossed it out. Not anymore! Now repurposing and upcycling are on everyone’s mind as we try to find ways to save money and use what we have for decorating and organizing. In other words, the old garden rake is coming out of the yard – in some cases- and into the house. I stuck with one particular style of rake for this post. It’s called a bow rake. Did I know that before this post? No. But I know how to Google. And if you want to know more about rakes, here’s where I found it. So, grab your rake, clean it up, sand it down and paint it if you want. Here are 7 fun projects you can create out of it.

    I really, really, REALLY like the idea of using a rake for holding kitchen utensils. I seem to have a zillion utensils and I’m always on the lookout for storage solutions. I think the look of the rake would go nicely with the rustic decor at the cabin too, although it would be equally at home in a contemporary setting.
