DIY Vintage Crutches Shelf

You don’t see a lot of wooden crutches being used today but that doesn’t mean there aren’t lots sitting around unloved and unused. Most new crutches today are made from aluminum – they’re lighter and cheaper to produce than timber crutches. In this project Mamie Jane shows you how you can turn trash into treasure with a bit of creativity.

DIY Vintage Crutches Shelf

She has a great idea of upcycling old wooden crutches into vintage style shelving! The materials she used are cheap and easy to find, and it only took her a few hours to finish the project.

If old wooden crutches are hard to find in your area, and you don’t want to spend a lot of money buying a set online, you’ll find that an old folding ladder will also give you similar result.
