One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. I’m always on the lookout for discarded items that can be repurposed and given a new life. I wasn’t actually scavenging when my husband and I were in our local wine store several months ago. But this “Maker’s Mark” display caught my eye. My initial thought was that it would make a great yarn cabinet. I asked Tim, our “go to wine expert” there what they do with displays when they’ve ended a promotion. The answer was that they usually throw them away. Mon Dieu – what a waste! I asked if he could save the display for me when it was no longer needed and the answer was a resounding “Yes, indeed.” Last week, I loaded it into my car and brought it home. I realized that it had several new life options. It would be a super cabinet for my many arts and crafts books, or if I had several cats, it would make a fabulous cat condo! But what I need most and have actually been looking for is storage for my ever-growing collection of DVDs. The case is open at the front and back and just deep enough to have room for DVDs on both sides – how perfect! So, the reclaimed “Maker’s Mark” cabinet now has a new life and is a very welcome addition to my studio. Thank you, Tim!
