I thought it time I found a purpose for some more of my Op shop stash!
Some time ago now, I picked up this Spice Rack – nothing exceptional but I was sure I could make good use of it, so today I am going to re-purpose a spice rack.
I thought I would get Poppy to paint it white for me, so while he was off doing that i got thinking!
After searching through the kitchen cupboards, I discovered that I could fit four glass tumblers neatly in the rack
I thought of covering them with fabric or even contact but was looking for a faster, more simple solution – why not try aluminium foil?
I ripped off a piece of the aluminium foil and wrapped it around the tumbler
I folded the top into the tumbler and pressed it firmly
I twisted the bottom
and then flattened it into the curve at the bottom of the tumbler
To give it a touch of ‘interest’, I gripped my hand around the tumbler and twisted carefully
Mmmm that’s different!! If ever I feel the need for change it certainly will not be hard to dispose of the aluminium foil.
The paint dried and Poppy screwed the rack to the wall and I now have a simple storage solution for my Rotary Cutters – right where they are needed – over my cutting table.
It looks great and fits nicely above my other op-shop find – my ruler storage that has been painted white as well!
Do you enjoy re-purposing items? What has been your favourite Op-shop find? I will have to venture out for another ‘shop’ soon!
Until next time
