Easy Home Center Reuse Ideas


Argentinean Easy Home Center (something like a regional Home Depot for Argentina and Chile) has recently launched a contest encouraging people to design with the elements they sell in the store. The cool thing about it is that even though they might have done it to sell more stuff or to get people to their shops more often, we think the ideas they’ve come up through designer Martin Churba are good ones to implement reuse anywhere. If the pictures in this post are too small, what you’re seeing is a dish drainer from plastic rakes; a lamp made with a plastic trash can; and a magazine stand from clothes hangers. Take a look at the gallery they uploaded online and get inspired. And if you happen to be Argentinean, the contest doesn’t close until September 15th. We’ll keep you posted about the results. ::Easy Contest Product Gallery
