Before & After: A Retro Bowling Ball Holder Gets A New Life

Pin it button big

We're always amazed by the vision and creativity it takes to see something with a specific purpose and completely reimagine it as something else. Such was the case with Dave. He found this retro bowling ball holder when a Chicago bowling alley was being demolished, and turned it into a handy object with a whole new identity. You'll be bowled over by this one.

It's now a planter! What a bright, fun way to display this vintage piece. Great idea.

Dave says, "Some elbow grease and imagination and now it is a very cool and happy planter for the garden!"

Contact Dave through his site Industrial Lion.

Thank you Dave!
