Digsmed Spice Wheel : Repurposed

Have you ever loved a mid century item but couldn't use it for its original purpose?  Well that is where I was with the striking Digsmed Spice wheels.  They are a gorgeous combination of design and function, but I could never sell them to Mr. Honey to hold our spices.  But when I found one on the big "E" for a mere $45 I couldn't pass it up!  Then came the task of figuring out how to use it.  After some thought, it came to me.  I can use it to hold my buttons!

 



So what do you think?  It acts as storage and art!
Now I just need two or three more....because I have a lot more buttons.  I can see it in my head, a large wall with multiple sized wheels full of different colored buttons.  Almost like a large kaleidoscope!

  2. Very cool! Would you believe I saw one of those in a thrift store once, and passed it up because I didn't know what it was? SIGH. Kicking myself now!
