I recycled some remnants of a very old piano that belonged to a friends grandmother... It had been at rest in his Shed for years and thank goodness he thought of me before it ended up on
the burn pile... He said he had been saving it just because it look so neat with all the carved wood but decided he wanted to clean up his shed and was doing some tossing out... When he told me what he had I never imagined how beautiful it would be when he bought it to me... The pieces were covered with so much dust and dirt but I saw right through that and with a little TLC cleaned them up and made it into a shelf above the bed...My Friend now wants his pieces back LOL!

All you need for this unique mat is: shelf liner, hot glue, a knife and 175 wine corks. If vino isn't your drink of choice, or you simply don't want to work through so many bottles, visit a few neighborhood restaurants. Many bars toss their wine corks at the end of the night and would be happy to save a few for you! Learn how to make it here: http://blog.brightnest.com/2012/08/06/learn-...
