Dryer - suspend an old refrigerator rack from the garage ceiling with a rope & hang laundry on it to dry.

Tool chest - remove the door & store tools & other shop equipment inside it.

Root cellar - remove the door from an old refrigerator, in a well-drained part of the backyard, dig a deep hole large enough to hold the refrigerator box horizontally; line the hole with rocks, then lower the appliance into the ground. Alternate layers of sand or hay with root vegetables. Cover the opening with plywood. Use concrete blocks to hold the plywood in place.

I know some people who use old refrigerators and freezers for storing out-of-season clothes.

Lay fridge on its back and remove everything you can from the inside. Use to store chaff or grain for horse feed - keeps the vermin out. Don't use this if you have small children - they can climb inside and be unable to get out and the fridge door seal is often air proof. If you are going to send the fridge to landfill always remove the door first to prevent this.

I saw a unique idea for a vintage refrigerator on a decorating show. They removed the door and used
it as a storage closet for canned goods, cereal, etc.
It could also go in another room for books or to hold
collections.

When we moved into our house there were 2 old unusable fridges in the cellar. I use the shelves for storing serving dishes that are used only during parties. The shelves in the door are handy for soda cans that don't fit into the fridge upstairs. Also handy for shopping bag storage, just be sure that the doors won't close if there are children in the house.

bury it in the back of your yard with the handle just below ground level to use as a compost bin--

we did this with an old dishwasher once -
the insulation makes the compost break down very quickly !

My boyfriend and his friends just made a 'Kegerator' out of ours...he removed the inner trim of the door, drilled out the front for a spout, added a handle (one of my old golf clubs cut down), and now he has 2 small kegs in it...great for his man bar!
