Great re-use idea! A friend was discarding an expensive, but old refrigerator. I asked for the bins which I use to wash things outside, and I asked for the wire shelves.

I immediately used them to keep squirrels from digging up morning glory seedlings, which they do every year. The sun and water can get through until the vines are big enough to hold on for themselves. I used to tie on screening, but that was a pain. This is so easy!

Reuse the refrigerator racks as a trellis in the garden for flowers or veggies? A small rack would be perfect in a large potted planter. Or hang the rack on the wall as an organizer for ear rings?


Can they be used with bricks to make shelving?

Glass shelves could be used on sink counters to protect the surface from being scratched, or under the coffee maker or espresso machine to keep coffee spills from staining counter surface or as a surface under slicing beets, or thawing frozen berries or packing berries ready for the freezer.
