Creative Reuse: Mini Bottle Salt and Pepper Shakers

How does a person with a love of glass bottles and no salt and pepper shakers live 30 years without ever thinking of this? I don't have a mini pair yet, but now that I have a focus they're sure to turn up—and when they do I'll have my drill ready!

I spotted these in a cafe the other day and I couldn't stop looking at them. So simple! Easy to use, easy to refill, easy to clean. Plus, they're recyclable and surprisingly ergonomic, even in their mini form. You could do the same thing with any glass bottle or jar. It's always nice to see an everyday item redefining its use.
