Condo Blues: Wine Box Wall Treatment

Wine Box Wall Treatment

While I was in Chicago, met up with some of the other members of the Green Moms Carnival and went out to eat at an Italian restaurant. After we were seated at our table, I looked at the focal wall in the restaurant – it was covered in the fronts of wine boxes – genius!

I think this wall treatment would work in a dining room or bar area in a home as a focal wall.

Fortunately I was eating with a bunch of fellow bloggers and good friends who thought nothing of me whipping out my camera and taking a few photos of this creative reuse wall treatment in public.

Public photo snapping in inopportune times is quickly becoming a blogger occupational hazard – especially when I want to document a great recycled art project like this.

What do you think?

I think that is a great reuse! And right here in my home town to boot.. Chicago is very active in the green movement you know!

Way cool! I've never seen that and my folks live in wine country. I have, however, run across a lot of creative reuse of wine corks - bulletin boards, floor mat, molding.

I love it!! I'm a big fan of the typography, too - so it appeals on so many different levels.
