What do you do with your old microwave?
What do you do with a microwave oven when it no longer works?
If you're in the city you just throw it out, but if you live in the country you just turn it into a mailbox.

During a trip down Manjimup way, I came upon these clever reuses for old microwave ovens.

Country folk have always been innovative when it comes to recycling just about anything.

Even used machinery can be reused as a mailbox.


Over at Harvey way, I came upon these clever reuses for old drums.


Old vehicles don't need to be thrown out, they can be reused as outdoor art.

Trees can be used as a canvas for your imagination and a few old things lying around the property.

This sign was on the Albany H'way going down to Kojanup.

So next time you are travelling through our South West, have a look out for unusual country signs.

You may find yourself thinking of what junk in your house you can turn into art.
