About a month ago I was at Kohl's perusing the clearance bath section for some tidbits and I found a light green ceramic trashcan dressed in a honeycomb design at 40% off the retail price. It was love at first sight, but I thought twice about making the purchase. I mean did I really need to replace my current trash bin? Of course not, so I let it ago. Until last week...
I saw the same honeycomb bin but this time at 80% off...zoink! Of course I bought it...along with the matching toothbrush holder and soap dispenser.
But I had other plans for them.
You see, I'm a knitter (though I only knit scarfs) and I have leftover balls of yarn scattered everywhere. So, I've been on the hunt for a cute basket to pile my spun wools. Problem?
Next I thought the soap dispenser and toothbrush holder would make darling vases.
Pop out the dispenser, add some water and whala! A set of multifaceted goodies.
Have you ever re-invented a product's intended purpose?
