Wall Art From The Unexpected
IKEA Napkin Holder found at a Garage Sale
In my garage sale travels a couple of years ago I stumbled upon this IKEA Napkin holder. I really liked all the aspects of this piece. It is simply a plastic square base with square cut outs and a flexible metal rod with a larger metal piece on the end.

I came home and tried it out as a napkin holder as intended...I was not thrilled. I thought it took up a lot of counter room. I like my napkins in the upright position. I know you are thinking "REALLY"?!?! That is just my preference.
This is when I decided to look at this piece in a different way. I liked the design of the napkin holder so I decided to repurpose it. I hung it in my newly remodeled bathroom. I had a wall that was not too big and needed a little something that could stand by it self. I hung the napkin holder up. It looks amazing! Everyone compliments me on the art work. I just smile before I reveal it was a napkin holder that I picked up at a garage sale.
This repurposing was easy. No paint or wood needed to transform this item. It simply needed a new identity. Change the way you think of an item.
Work of Art!
