If you still own your vinyl records, don’t you think of trowing them away!
In case you don’t listen music from it anymore, and they are only collecting dust in the basement, we are giving you some inspirational ideas that will encourage you to find a way how to make a good use of the once popular vinyl records.
Nowadays it is rare that someone is listening to records on gramophones, so instead of throwing the excess (there are a lot of rare old vinyl records from the 50s , 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s) away, use them to make art, holders, bowls, clocks, something you can use in everyday life and make your home unique-looking.
