Once all exterior remodeling work is complete, your roofing and siding contractors will start to clear out the site, hauling your old clapboards out to their truck for proper disposal. However, you may want to keep some of your siding boards on hand. They may look like trash now, but with a little tweaking here and there, you’ll find that they could be an incredibly useful resource for some DIY home decor.
Let our renovation professionals at Hinkle Roofing show you a few creative ways to breathe new life into your old siding boards.
Dining Room Additions
Unlike roofing materials, siding boards can be a great source of wood for any project. Any enterprising DIY-enthusiast will find that the abundance of wood or vinyl can be fashioned into a number of different pieces of furniture such as console tables, shelving and even chairs. Combined with an existing hinged window, you can also build some decorative cabinets for displaying knick-knacks around your home.
Interesting Wall Designs
If you have a collection of differently-colored scraps of old siding materials, use them for a larger-than-life mosaic project for one of your walls. The siding chips lend themselves well to small and detailed artwork that’s perfect for homeowners with varying levels of handiness and craftiness. It could also be a great hobby for young children to help you sort out the colors, although you may have to give them gloves to prevent splinters.
With a little paint and some creativity, you can transform a tired old siding board into a great wall piece for the bedroom. Its tough surface can also help protect nearby furniture in case you’re in need of roof repair services for leakages. You can also use the boards as a durable headboard to accentuate the style of your bed.
