The deli paper dispenser.
As a string/twine/ribbon dispenser.
How about a toilet paper holder?
In the kitchen for quick access to a dish towel?
In the entry to catch those gloves, scarves, or umbrellas!
In the powder room to welcome guests.
A simple way to display your favorite jewelry!
Need a place to hang those keys?
I know you have extension cords to organize!
Every pet lover needs a clever pet station!
Cook up a storm while using it as a cookbook stand.
My fave...use it to hold your favorite publications! JunkMarket, of course!

This is a vintage deli paper dispenser I picked up on my Junking Weekend, December 27-28, 2008! What do you do with a vintage deli paper dispenser? Well, I came up with 19 (yes, 19!) repurpose ideas for this wonderful vintage item. You can use it all around the house! In fact, there are so many ideas, I couldn't fit them all into this post! You'll have to visit me at WhisperWood Cottage to see the remaining 8 ideas. Which is your favorite? Any other ideas? Can't wait to hear!

P.S. How about in a garden shed...with some hooks to hang garden tools, etc...?? (#20?):)

Thanks so much for sharing, Amy!
