How do I repurpose a medical walker?

Luckily we no longer need several medical walkers? Instead of donating these well used items, can they be made into something different?

    I donated a lot of braces and walkers to a Brace Company to rework/renew for people that did not have the funds to purchase new items. They were very grateful to receive them.

    Most senior centers also have a Durable Medical Equipment 'closet' with items that they will loan to people who need them. Otherwise, your imagination is the only limit.

    Could you turn them sideways and add some wood slats on them to make a wall shelf?

    Paint over the metal and it could turn out really cool!

    If you donate them to the Salvation Army they employee people to repair or refurbish most materials. But don't be like my dad. He donated stuff that was junk. If these are in bad shape reuse them in your garden.

    Let some green bean vines grow up and over these.
