The "Killer Friggin' Treehouse" (K.F.C.)- What's the weirdest thing you've repurposed??

 Yeah, again, my wife's a trooper....she came home to find THIS sitting in our yard.....

 Well, cruising through the ole Taco Hell drive thru the other day, I spotted this perched on top of their remodel-dumpster, and thought it was far too ridiculous to pass up. Having a few coils of rope and bungees in my van- always- I loaded 'er up.

What will I do with it? Well, the title of this post pretty much spoils it, but this thing is so rugged and thick (and nearly 5' by 8') that it would make a great, and super-gaudy, tree house roof! A friend of mine also came up with the evil suggestion of making it the roof of a chicken coop! Evil, yet comical....

What about you? Can you top this one in terms of bizarre re-purposed items!?

  1. Hey Deek, I'v enjoyed following your blog and your post on re-purposing is something I could relate to and a KFC-oop sounds like a great idea. Hers a link to my blog and some re-purposed projects...
    thanks tom

  2. Wow, what a find! I like the chicken coop idea, but rather than a roof, the best revenge would be to make it the floor.

  3. I love the irony! I saw a post once about a guy who said "when a bird poops on my car, I sit on the porch and east scrambled eggs". Too cute!

  4. I made a needle fob out of a baby formula scoop, coffee, hot glue and a soda cap. Not "house oriented" but still pretty cool. If you would like, check out and click on the recycled catagory. Keep up the great work Deek...I follow you and Kent Griswald everywhere, and share you on FB a lot. You both give me hope.
