There were three ideas posted for the antique kitchen scale. I think I'm most likely to use the idea from the anonymous poster who suggested putting a basket on top to hold mail or odds and ends. Now I just have to find the right basket!
Over the Door Towel RackTwo weeks ago, I showed my towel rack turned magazine holder on my office door and I ask what unconventional thing you would do with it. I love the idea from Susan at Busy 'Lil Homemaker. She suggested displaying mini quilts on it.
I could also see it used on the back of a bedroom door as a valet. You could choose your outfit for the next day and hang hangers or loop pants over the bars. It isn't a decorating idea, but it's a functional way to reuse a piece. Or, imagine it on the back of the entry door with cute little clothespins for drying mittens and scarves. It's functional but decorative.
This week for WWYD, I'd like to know what you would do with a mish-mash collection of plates. It could be china, enamelware, or pottery. Maybe you broke the rest of the set, or you received a plate as part of a gift. Either way, you've ended up with odds and ends that don't go with sets. Imagine your plates in the picture below.
What do you do if you have just one of something but it has sentimental value? Or what if you have several one of a kind pieces but you're tempted to donate them to the thrift shop? How would you use the odds and ends in your cupboards? Share your WWYD comments below and let's see if we can come up with some "out of the box" ideas!
