Repurpose: Old records / LPs / Vinyl


Today, a few more vinyl refabs because apparently I can't get enough.




Look closely at the accessory stands above. Those are sewing machine bobbins!  I love it. I spotted these at Make Shop Live and was captivated. No, it's not a DIY, but combine techniques for making vinyl bowls (here and here) and making this vinyl dessert stand and ... hmmmm...


We've all seen Paul Villinski's famous 2008 butterfly installations.  With a little patience, you can make your own care of ThreadSense and Graffiti Beach


I see these all over Etsy etc.  This is an actual tutorial care of Home Dzine 


Combine old 45s and vintage tea towels to create original retro wall art. Care of Merriment Design


Or, combine a vinyl decal and your old LPs to re-create a well-known Banksy installation! Thanks to Heidi for letting me know about her project. Your google translater will do a good job on her site!


Old plant stand + old LP = new end table.  Instructions at The Flourishing Abode


Make a little custom art? Great, detailed tutorial from Forever and a Recipe


Vinyl bookends. Simple. Lovely. How-to at DIY Life 


Now this is ... novel! Old 45s become a centerpiece. Tutorial care of Record Pressing


Yay! Make a purse / handbag... really really. An actual tutorial! Thanks to tuppencehapennyvintage

I'm a sucker for whimsy ... and I love spinning tops. So how about including your kids in the sacrifice of your old LPs?  Instructions at The Craft Junkie


No roundup of vinyl repurposes is complete without a bowl tutorial right? This is the second time I'm featuring these lovelies from Skulls and Ponies. They're made using hot water rather than the oven technique - a little kinder on the lungs, I believe.


Earring storage! Yes ... of course. I found this image here. For a really good tutorial, head to Craftbits.

I spotted these vinyl switch plates at Werecords by Monkey. They look DIY-able to me. Your standard switch plate is your template. Then you need a little cutting advice  ... which you can get here.
