Hello AT,

I have been reluctant to throw out my empty green glass water
bottles, and now I have about ten of them piling up in my kitchen.
I'd like to find some creative use for them, but I'm not sure what the bottles would be good for. I do need some book shelves and thought that I could use these as 'legs' between boards to make a bookcase. Other than that, I'm stumped. I'm hoping maybe you or your readers could offer some suggestions. Here is a picture of a few of the bottles with my cat Fuzzy for scale. Cheers, Jackie

Dear Jackie,

There are so many things you can do! (Recycling isn't a bad option either). One very cool thing we've seen is where wine bottles were used to create a wall (allowing light to shine through) at AVEC restaurant in Chicago. In our opinion, the more you employ multiples, the more you will distract people from the fact that they are simply empty bottles and get them into the bottle-ness and glass-ness of the form.

Then there is also the cool shaping of bottles that Tord Boontje has been doing with Emma Woffenden.....

Anyone else???
