Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Bicycle Wheels

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Recently I scored an old bicycle wheel like the one I found above on Etsy. I have yet to decide what I want to do with it; but after doing a little online research I've discovered that this spoked circle can do  more than get you from point A to point B.

and this dream catcher for all you hippies out there via one part gypsy

Honestly, I'll probably go the simple inspiration board route, but at least I have options!

Speaking of bikes, how many of you had a banana-seat-schwinn when you were little? I did - tassels on the handlebars too! xo


  1. outside dream catcher all the way (said in the hippy 'double rainbow all the way' voice).

    i like the simplicity of the wheel too. you could always use it to display art or photographs :)

    love you creative friend!

  2. Ooo I love that chandelier!! :)

  3. You sure know how to put a new spin on things~

  4. Hey, whew it has been a minute since I stopped by.

    I love this and reminds me of a show I watched with my fam this past weekend. It is a Flea market type show. Anyway the designers had to use cash provided by the show, barter for flea mrkt finds and repurpose and sell them. This couple bought an old cruiser bike and turned it into a table! Ingenious!!

    Ok, so we need to catch up soon! Hope all is well and coming along nicely with the house??


  5. love this! I've never thought of bicycle wheels, but now I will be on the lookout...let us know what you decide!
