Place Mats Become Backsplash

So you just moved into a new rental, but you can get past the fact the kitchen looks like a mess hall at a North Korean POW camp. Well, just cut up some rubber place mats, glue them to the wall, and you have a geometric backsplash your friends will be envious of.

Baby Changing Station Becomes Countertop

This one seems pretty poetic: The same stand made to change soiled diapers is now a surface to bring your culinary fantasies to life. Practical and metaphorical genius all at once.

CD Towers Become Spice Racks

Everyone has a pair of outdated CD racks collecting dust in their garbage, ready to make a utilitarian comeback. With just a simple modification, the same racks that once held your copy of Windows '97 can now hold your sumac, lemon pepper, and turmeric with equal ease.

Your collection of thrift store and bargain basement cutlery can look like any top chef's knife collection once you elegantly assemble them into this makeshift stand. You'll not only look less indigent but your dinner guests will be sure to praise your creative frugality.

Crib Becomes Drying Rack

I must bow at the miserliness of the baker who would rather convert their child's crib into a drying rack. This hack isn't for the faint of heart, but is definitely impressive.
