Su Casa: Thinking Outside the Furniture Box

Su Casa member Divagwendolyn recently posted pictures of a friend's creative use of an unusual furniture item. Here's the piece in use in her friend's home.

Can you guess what this sleek-looking shelf has been constructed from? To find out,

.

It's made from a serving cart! Divagwendolyn writes, "A dear friend of mine is so creative he took the serving cart shown here, turned it upside down, and created shelves. The glass was actually custom made for the top of the 'shelving unit' (and yes, he carried that heavy piece of glass home on the subway!). Talk about amazing. I would have never known that this was a serving cart. He even has plastic bumpers on the handles to protect his floor."

Cute idea! I would probably leave it right side up and use it as a small and portable laptop station. The footballs are an interesting choice of decoration... :D

I did a similar thing with the hutch part of my parents' server/hutch from Pottery Barn. I took the shelf out of the glass display cabinet and used it as a shelf across the open bottom. I put it on the floor for a great looking bookcase.....sorry no photo...but the point is, as I learned in art, you have to look at an object from all angles, and let your imagination gear itself toward function and need. It's not just the space and shape of something, but the negative/open space that helps creativity.Nice job, great -one of a kind- piece.
