Here’s what you can do with old calendars apart from lining the shelves of your cupboards. Pick out a calendar that you wouldn’t mind adorning your walls with for over a year.

The Functional Ladder
Got an old wooden ladder that really can’t take your weight anymore? Or maybe even a metal ladder that you can spare? Bring it out and spruce it up with a paint job. Next, use its steps as shelves. Stack in your books, small potted plants, knick-knacks or just wind a couple of fairy lights around it.

The one thing that almost every Indian family has, is a trunk; a trunk full of your grandparent’s memories, old clothes or maybe just junk. Bring those old trunks and suitcases out and put them to use. Paint them in soft pastels or the brights, whatever you’d like against your wall and stack them up. Now use these as a shelf. Put up a lamp to light up the space, a painting to add that dash of whimsy or just your essentials.

There’s no space or wall that plants can’t spruce up! Stack them up on a ladder shelf, floating shelves, get the planters hung from hooks, or just use big potted plants.
