As mentioned yesterday, I've been craving lucite storage. This is because lucite or acrylic allows you to see through the storage and examine your loot. This is also because I'm a 70s child who loves shiny plastic things.
Acrylic storage doesn't cost much, but I challenged myself to find acrylic storage that costs nothing at all, and I succeeded. Can you guess what my stacking trays are made from?
In its former life, my big tray was the World's Ugliest Artwork (I may like 70s plastic but I do not care for 70s photography). This plastic box frame shown above was being tossed.
I pulled the photo and cardboard filler out of the back and had myself a tray.
The two small trays started out as a candy box. Someone ate the candy without sharing and tossed the box, which I pulled from the recycle bin. I peeled off the label and had what you see above.
The big tray became home to some of my favorite necklaces and pins.
The two smaller trays display some of my massive pin collection, organized by color.
Stacked, they still reveal what lies beneath.
Have you upcycled anything good lately?
