Last week Apartment Therapy San Francisco gave us a quick look into the office makeover from Jason Loper. After taking a stroll through his Flickr we also noticed a great repurposing project that not only looks amazing, but is functional too!
Jason can usually be found at his store in Chicago, where he creates original handbags. His work is fabulous but needed a method of display in his show room. By using discarded drawers and attaching them to the wall, he created shelving that floats away from the ground and truly showcases his designs.
The same idea would translate well out of a showroom and into your home, as it would make even the smallest of objects a true focal point in your space. It's a great way to highlight a collection that might otherwise be lost on a typical set of shelving or bookcase. Leave them rustic and as-is like Jason did, paint them different colors, or the same as your wall color, either way, you can't go wrong!
