Repurpose: Don't trash the mini-blinds!



The mini-blinds. If you rent an apartment (flat) anywhere in the world, I believe you probably live with mini-blinds. They're ugly. And hard to clean. And I think that when people dream of owning a home, they also dream of a life without mini-blinds.

This past weekend, the USA celebrated Memorial Day. This holiday is also the unofficial kickoff to summer. And a big moving weekend. Which means the Chicago alleys are full of crap people are throwing out. Including mini-blinds. Next time you consider shoving them into a dumpster, consider this: they're durable vinyl. They aren't going away any time soon. Anything else you could do with them (after soaking them in the bath of course) .... ?
