snack container upcycling

Upcycled snack container mini-shelf

… or what became of a party leftover

A little while ago I had a party at my place and someone left an empty snack container. I was just about to pick it up and throw it in the recycling bin when I realized how oddly stylish it looked. As I’m looking for new (and cool) ways to put some of the chaos on my desk into place I turned the snack container into an upcycled mini-shelf.

I used some old nail polish (I’m not using any anymore, so I’m always happy to find a new use for it) to give it a little makeover and pinned it to my wall. I didn’t have any proper nails, but the pin holds it well enough. If you want it to be more stable, attach it to a piece of wood. Of course it can’t hold anything seriously big or heavy, but it’s definitely a nice way of presenting particularly cool-looking items.

… and this is how a party leftover became the new home for my post-its and rubbers.
