Before you get rid of the bricks from that old chimney or patio repair, hang on! Bricks take up a lot of landfill space, so whenever possible, you should try to reuse them. Luckily, there are some genius ways to use old bricks throughout your home. Check out the following suggestions:
Use a hole saw with a 1 1/2-inch carbide masonry bit to drill a couple of holes in a leftover brick, then place two tea lights inside and light them up. It’s great for outside entertaining, because it doubles as a weight for your tablecloth on windy evenings. Thanks, This Old House!
