At Dirty Work, we’re passionate about junk and recycling. That’s why we love “upcycling” so much – it combines our two favorite things!

We’ve been searching the web, especially Pinterest, for awesome junk décor ideas and we’ve found tons. It was hard to narrow them down to just our five favorites, but we did it!

In no particular order, our five favorite junk décor ideas are…

Newspaper Table newspapertable

Did you know that 31% of all the trash in landfills is paper?!?  That’s why we love this idea. It’s a great way to save some paper from the landfill and create some unique home décor.

This is a great DIY home organization project. All you’ll need is an old wooden box (you could also use an old dress drawer), a couple of beer bottles, some rope and glue!

Drawer Night Standsdrawertable

If you have an old dresser you’re getting rid of, you might want to hold onto the drawers. You can reuse them in some awesome ways. Turns out old dresser drawers can make really awesome and cheap night stands!

DIY2Key Holding Frame

Can’t find your car keys? Have an old frame you want to get rid of? Pop out the glass, add some hooks and use it to hold your car keys. This is perhaps the most practical junk décor project we’ve seen.

Tire Tableblog1

Tires are one of the most frequently illegally dumped items. Because of this, you’ll probably be able to find some old tires on the side of the road to use for this craft. Other than a tire, all you’ll need is a couple of pieces of wood to use as legs and a piece of round glass, both of which can be found at your local arts and crafts store, to make this awesome table.
