Your kitchen is the heart of the home, where meals are prepared, enjoyed, and memories are made. However, with all the cooking and baking that goes on in the kitchen, it's easy to accumulate a lot of kitchenware that eventually is replaced by new items, and can quickly take up space.

Instead of letting these items go to waste, consider repurposing them for other uses.

Here's some inspiration straight out of the oven to help get your creative juices flowing...

If you have an old cutting board lying around that you no longer use, why not repurpose it as a blackboard or wall hanging? To transform your cutting board into a blackboard, all you need is some chalkboard paint and a brush. Simply apply the paint to the board, let it dry, and voila - you have a custom-made blackboard. You can also mount one for your iPAD, drill a hole in the top of the board and attach a piece of twine or ribbon to create a wall hanging. Use it to write notes, make grocery lists, or display inspirational quotes.

Pot lids can be repurposed as handy holders for scissors and tea towels. Simply attach adhesive hooks to the underside of the pot lid and hang it on the wall or the side of a cabinet to create a convenient and organised storage solution. Alternatively, you can use an old cheese grater.

Painted spoons can be repurposed as easy-to-use plant markers for your garden or potted plants. First, paint the back of each spoon with chalkboard paint or another type of paint that will adhere to the metal. Once the paint is dry, you can write the name of the plant on the spoon with a chalk or chalk marker. Then, simply place the spoon in the soil near the plant to easily identify it. This is a great way to keep track of the different types of plants you have in your garden or to label your herbs and vegetables in a raised bed or container garden. Plus, the colourful spoons add a fun and decorative touch to your garden!

Alternatively, you can use the woven bags as a decorative element by filling them with plants or flowers and hanging them on the wall. Either way, repurposing woven bags is a great way to add a touch of boho chic to your kitchen.
