Wheelbarrows can be found anywhere. But what’s tricky is trying to find a way to reuse an old, rusty, seemingly useless wheelbarrow. What we want to share and show you today and is that this rusty ol’ piece of junk can be transformed into something very cool and very practical for the outdoors (and some indoor ideas) and give your wheelbarrow a makeover and a new purpose.
What we love about wheelbarrows is that the good old classic metal ones will last for decades. They seem to be worthless in some sense, but they use to be very well made (and some today still are) and so it really would be a waste to send it to the junkyard.
After researching this topic, we were shocked at all of the amazing and creative ideas that people have had regarding reuse of wheelbarrows. We’ve rounded up these brilliant ideas below. Just click on the name for the full project.
