Repurpose: Old Guitars can still Rock!

To wrap up a week of guitar-related posts, here's a roundup of quirky ways to repurpose them (or parts of them! 

Give it a whole new look and use it as a shelf ... 

Or hang it on a wall and use it as a planter

Ok, not an actual guitar.  But I love this guitar-case bookshelf

I did a (metaphorical) jig when I saw this project ... turning an old guitar into a speaker seems like a very respectful re-use to me!

Guitar heads become wall hooks. Not a DIY ... but looks infinitely do-able to me!

One image from a great roundup of steampunked guitars

I recently posted a round-up of quirky, urban-garden planters that included a beautiful image of a guitar as part of a rooftop garden. I love the way this guitar planter frames the porch/veranda ... and still looks very much like what it is!

Newspaper, book pages and sheet music can quickly turn an old guitar into a piece of art or a clock!

This incredible piece incorporates an actual acoustic guitar - you have to see all the other images of this beautiful Guitar Table with compartments

Starry starry nights .... this lamp is genius, right?  DIY here

It's a dollhouse. Or rather, a masterpiece in miniature - not a DIY! For more images (because you know you want to see more), click here

Finally, recycle the strings by turning them into a centerpiece that you'll never need to throw out
