I have two drum frames in fairly good condition left here by my brother-in-law when he moved out ... the heads are damaged on both ... but i want to do something with them ... "lamp" no ... 'table" no ... something different. I even thought about mounting them for shelving ... but theyre pretty heavy for all that ... any other ideas???  Smiley

How heavy are they?  You may still be able to mount them if you find the studs and use good heavy duty wall anchors.  However, if you do fill it with books, then you may just take a wall down with the combined weight.

You could still make them into shelves and make a floor stand for extra supports too, or use them or something lighter, like pictures.  Or how hard would it be to cut them in half - maintain the round drum shape, but make shallower shelves - you get to double the shelving, or make something else, and lighten the load before mounting on the wall.  Maybe you could take the other half, and if you have a pet, turn it into a frame for a pet bed or something.

What about turning it into garden art and making them into raised beds or something?

How about using them for storage bins?

Reinforce the torn heads by gluing a piece of carpet over them and turn them over. Fill them with mittens, hats & scarves....or crafty projects like yarns!

If you have little kids, reinforce the heads underneath with the glued carpet and let them pound on them (it would be so loud) or put small toys in them, or stuffed animals.

Put one in the bathroom or guest room and fill it with towels and facecloths.

In the kitchen, use it as a potato bin

I hope there were a few ideas here to inspire you. Have fun!

Junk Gypsies used two drums as storage  bins for pillows and blankets in a living room. They reinforced the  bottoms with plywood and added castors. They looked great.

Teesha Moore inspired patches--anyone want to swap?
