20+ Common Things That Were Turned Into Singular Works of Art

Where everyone else sees trash, creative people see an opportunity to create something wonderful. From an unfunctional fan turned into a lamp to a microwave transformed into a postbox, creative minds are untameable. And they don’t stop there, they can even make an ordinary wall look like a real person.

We at Bright Side admire creative people, and that’s why we collected a bunch of pics of their creations, proving that a person’s creativity can go far and beyond.
