    Looks like you can have lots of fun with an old bike! I like the pot/pan hanger idea! You could also offer it up on freecycle or even sell it for parts on eBay!

    These ideas are so much fun! I love bicycles! My favorite is the one with the basket of flowers. It makes me want to ride around town with a bunch of flowers in my bike basket. Thanks for sharing! Have a great day!

    What a fabulous post!

    I spotted the sink one on pinterest too over the holidays and nudged the Old Man – I’d love to have that in my utility room!
