What do I do with my old license plates? And the answer is.

You can do what ever you want.

I ran into this great way of making tool boxes out of old license plates. Also Bird houses, purses and planters. At the Carlsbad New Mexico Farmers Market.

Thanks to Kelly Allen of Carlsbad. He owns PECOS VALLEY TOOL BOX MANUFACTURING.

Do you have any personlized plates and don't know what to do with them? Just give Kelly a call and he can help you out.

Tool boxes  bird houss and planters

You can call him at 1-575-885-3651 Sorry no web site as of yet.

Hand made tool boes and purses.

Get this and this is the really, really cool part...You can send him your own plates and he can make you the tool box or bird house of your choice. These were so cool, I wanted to post about the ingenuity of some of our local artists. Stay tuned there is more to come.

Let it be known, Clint McKie or Desert Sun Inspections have no vested interest in Pecos Valley toolbox manufacturing in any way.

Good evening, Clint. Now that is a cool idea. I have several plates that I am fixing to toss. I reckon a bird house might be the cat's meow....

Hi Michael, Good to see you back in the Rain.

That's a cool way to recycle and get a bird house out of the deal. I bet they would last a really long time. Unlike the ones you get today that are made in China.

Have a great day in Nashville.

Best, Clint McKie

Hello Conrad,

Yes it was. I was wondering when he would start posting again. I hope all is well with him and his family.

With that said, thank you for the comment. Now you know what to do with your old plates.

Have a great day in Webster, Ma.

Hi James,

It could have been boredom one day. "I think I will build a bird feeder or house out of a license plate". Who knows my friend. Kinda cool though.

Have a good day in Rogers, Arkansas my friend.

Best, Clint Mckie

Hello Clint,

Now that is a great idea ! Looks like most of those plates are in new condition, I am sure there are many other ways to recycle license plates. Very creative. Great post.

 

 

Make it a great day !!

Hi Clint.

That is very innovative...I think that I'll built myself a tool box like the one in the picture.
