Ways to restore #tea #kettles

screen-shot-2017-01-03-at-3-57-39-pmEvery object can be used in several ways. And that’s one mantra to brighten up your home. Do away with the regular decor items that you get off the internet and restore some of your old things to liven up your home. Tea kettles have their own charm, and if you are wondering what to do with your old stainless steel kettle that you have not been using for a long time, we tell you ways you can use it in several ways, with a little tinkering…

Flower vase

Tea kettle has a vintage charm, so you can use it as a flower vase. All you have to do is pick some fresh flowers every day and fill the vase. Place it on your dining table or in your garden as it is sure to brighten up your decor.

Paint them

You can choose to go with a single, bright-coloured paint (like the one shown in the picture), or choose to paint it entirely using various patterns. Place it on the side table in your rooms or on your centre table in your living room. It will be great focal point for your overall decor, we promise.

Watering cans

If your old tea kettle is in a shape that can’t be restored to a great degree, here’s an idea. Colour it up in bright hues of yellow or orange and use it as a watering can. The best part is that you need not hide such a watering can inside a cupboard, as keeping this by the side of your pots itself gives your balcony a unique look.

Piggy bank

Bored of using animal-inspired piggy banks? Convert your old tea kettle into a piggy bank. On the plus side, there’s no additional work required… you can use your kettle just the way it was. Cool, no

Hang them

If you have brass tea kettles that you no longer use, hang them on your walls artistically. Do up the decor in one corner of the room with objects that go well with brass. Then, decide on a place to hang the kettle. You don’t have to do any polishing or colouring, as the worn-out kettle itself would add a rustic touch.

Chimes

Kettle chimes are for people who want to add a bit of quirk to their decor. This requires some work, but you will be happy with the end product. Drill small holes beneath the kettle and put a wire through the opening. Then, take a few old spoons and drill a hole on each of them. Now, insert the wire into the hole in the spoons and make a simple knot. Hang it in your balcony and your kettle chimes are ready!
