Re-Use Old CD Shelves as Kitchen Shelving for Mugs and Glasses

How to Re-Use Your Old CD Shelving: Kitchen Storage!

Hasn't everyone had those ubiquitous black CD shelves at some point to house their music collection? Now that people are digitizing whole music collections, there's no need for the discs themselves, let alone the shelving to store them.

Rather than put the units out on the street, give them a second life! Apartment Therapy spotted this solution from Living Etc., which utilizes the old black CD shelving with cubby holes as storage/display for mugs. Though the pictured shelf has the frame already attached, you could finish off any old CD shelf with an inexpensive frame from a flea market or thrift store, which makes you forget all about the shelf's origins.

You could build on this idea and use the cubbies to hold glasses or other small items, like jewelry and sunglasses. Have you ever been able to re-use superfluous tech storage?
