I needed to get out of the house for a bit and if you read my previous post, you know that I’m recovering from a DIY that went sideways. Sometimes a little retail therapy soothes the soul.
So today, I decided to hit my favorite antique store in the area.
I came across this old CD tower. I walked away and forgot about it momentarily as I did my usual second lap through the store. As I approached the checkout with my arms full of marked down knick-knacks, there it was again.
I first had to get my mind wrapped around the thought that CD’s are actually considered…vintage. As the clerk rang up my treasures I glazed my eyes and took a second…and third look at this thing. Somewhere the mental Rolodex of Pinterest images was an upcycled CD tower being re-used for something.
I’ve been looking for something useful in the kitchen where I can store towels or other kitchen supplies, but I don’t have
a lot of wall space ANY wall space whatsoever. Except for one, teensy little sliver.
Another look…and by the way, all the knick knacks I bought today? That’s what is also on display. Two Mason Jars, the little white vase, the pretty towel and the CD rack…total of $24:
