I'm looking for a word that means to repair something in such a way that it changes its function.
Example: The washing machine was broken and I repaired it in such a way that the function of washing machine is no longer washing clothes but, say, now it colours the clothes.
What did I do to the washing machine? Is there any word for that?
I will clarify my question. Actually I'm working on a project in which I made one thing out of another. The washing machine example was "just an example". I can't share what I did but I will give some more examples:
- I had a bicycle and I changed it to a car.
- I made a big phone out of my laptop (changed from one thing to another).
- I had a picture scanner but I changed it to a printer.
