• Put your treasures on display. From perfume bottles and vases to salt-and-pepper shakers and bowls, collectibles take center stage when elevated.
• Keep dishtowels and washcloths close at hand in the kitchen or bathroom.
• Organize your jewelry. The perfect place for bracelets, earrings and rings.
• Display votive and pillar candles. Use stands of different heights to create an interesting setting.
• Corral your keys and cell phone on a dresser or table.
• Place a cake stand near your front door to hold letters, bills and to-do lists.
