I ran across this vintage metal ALBUM rack (for you youngsters, go ask your parents what an album is! lol It's kinda like a giant CD!) It is is beautiful shape and I love the lines of it....and it dawned on me that it just might work down in my craftroom! I have been struggling to find a the perfect way to store my big papers so that I can see them and they are readily available for use.....So........
I just LOVE how my big 12" x 12" paper pads fit into the album slots! I have the pads set on edge so I can just thumb through them to find the papers I want or to inspire me on my next project.
Plus, now I have some additional shelves on my work table to hold lots of other supplies! I love it...I get to re-use an otherwise rather obsolete piece of furniture and get some excellent new storage out of it!
So, go out and rescue an old piece of furniture today and see what excellent new uses you can get out of it! I'd love to see what you have done, so if you have a cool find or re-do of an old furniture piece, link me up in the comments here, I'd love to see them!
