What Can You Do with Your Old Blinds?

What will you do with your old blinds when the time comes to get new window coverings for your home? Yes, you could throw them away at the neighborhood landfill, but there are ways you can repurpose them instead. After you install new Reno, NV window blinds, here are a number of things you can do with your old blinds.

Headboard Cover
Do you have a headboard that needs some updating? Instead of getting rid of it and replacing it with something else, you can give it a fresh new look with your old blinds. This will work especially well if your old blinds are made from a fabric material. You will simply need to weave the old linen slats over the headboard in a neat fashion. You can then use a stapler to hold everything in place.

Plant Markers
Another way to repurpose old window blinds is to use the slats to make plant markers. They can be a great addition to your garden, especially if you have a large garden and would like to label the various flowers and produce. You’ll just need to cut them to the size you want them, and then you can use a writing instrument to write down the types of flowers and produce on the plant markers.

You can also cut old window blind slats to make bookmarks. Get them to the size you want them. You can even add a string to one end and draw or paint designs to make them more unique.

You can use the slats to weave a basket. If you’re not familiar with how to do this, you can always check out some videos online. They will give you an idea of how you can repurpose slats to create something useful.

Paint Barrier
Another option if you want to repurpose your old window blinds is to use them as a paint marker. Painter’s tape works best to keep paint restricted to where you want it, but window blind slats that are cut to an appropriate length will help as well.

Donate Them
One way to repurpose old window blinds is to give them away. You’ve probably seen them at thrift shops in the past. Sometimes someone simply wants to update the look of their rooms, and this might involve getting rid of window blinds that are in pretty good shape.

Recycle Them
If your window blinds are recyclable, then find out where you can drop them off. This will keep them out of the already very crowded landfills.
