After seeing this, I’m never throwing out an old belt again

Belts are very necessary sometimes – they help keep those pants or skirts up just where they need to be.

But as with so many other things, it might be worth thinking twice before you dump your next used belt in the trash.

I came across this super neat hack on what to do with your used leather belts and just had to share – check it out below! 

Directions:

To begin with, you need two boards to form your shelves.

It need not be anything sophisticated or expensive, you may simply use leftover materials you have available at home.

Paint the shelves with a sponge. Use a color that you like and that will suit your decor.

YouTube

Now grab your old belt. Trim or cut off the buckle and any metal parts.

YouTube

Cut the belt into four equal pieces.

YouTube

Mark the place on your board where your belt straps should sit.

YouTube

Also mark where the belt will be secured to your wall.

YouTube

Using two small nails, attach the belt onto your plank of wood.

YouTube

Then, simply nail your belt straps onto the wall.

YouTube

Voilà! You now have your very own unique shelf with the help of an old belt.
