There are a few items at the thrift store that I always feel sorry for: plastic tupperware, sad stuffed animals, sports equipment. But what if that barrel of old skis wasn't used on the slope, but in home decor instead?

This new trashcan design at Bryant Park was intended to be outdoors, but the same idea could come inside with a little DIY.

The first thing I thought of when I saw this design were skis.Try cutting them in half and lining the outside of a planter, make a bench from them or even a large floor vase. You busted out a hole saw or two, you could create a polka dot effect like some of the pieces above.

What do you think?
