A hurricane vase for toilet paper and plant stands for cocktails. I just love it when I find another use for something beyond its original purpose. The cleverness and originality make you look smart but it can also make you look quite green as you repurpose, recycle, and reuse items again and again.
My new favorite find is this quirky magazine rack. An old mail sorter, the crate does a great job of organizing rows of the rolled up rags and even provides a little shelf space up top. I'm already wondering what its next life will be. Could be perfect for stashing small shoes or perhaps a CD case? Do people even have those anymore?
