Creative ways to re-purpose your old bricks
If you have left over clay bricks from a recent home renovation or landscaping update, don’t toss these aside.
We have gathered some creative ideas to get you thinking outside the box!
Home decor gold!
Take inspiration from your favourite old classics to create weathered, vintage looking ‘books’ perfect as bookends or stacked together on a shelf or even left in the garden!
Garden bed edging
Both concrete and clay bricks make a simple and effective boarder to any garden bed.
An entertainers delight!
Cost effective and easy to create, old bricks are the perfect material to create your own fire pit for those chilly nights.
For the food lover
Create an impressive veggie garden or mini greenhouse!
Some bricks already have holes and make the perfect planters or candle holders to dress up your outdoor entertaining.
Or create a stacked version for a new age vertical garden – succulents and cacti would be perfect!
A striking feature wall
Get creative with shapes and patterns for a striking garden feature wall or sculpture. Add some outdoor lighting and you have created something magical!
The new industrial
You can also get creative indoors too for a textured wall hanging. A perfect compliment to a industrial and minimalistic home.
