What Can You Create With This?

November 7, 2014

You never know what you will find at the Wake ReStores however, you will always find unique items at bargain prices. We recently received a shipment of old, terracotta roofing tiles and they are out of the ordinary. These are one of those items that are so unique, that we just don't know what to do with them. So - we are reaching out to our crafters, DIY enthusiasts, and repurpose designers to come up with a cleaver use for these tiles.

What can you create with this item?

We came up with a few ideas but would love to see what you can do with these tiles. The tiles are made of terracotta, with a green glaze on the front side (I think its the front?). They are 16 inches long, 9.25 inches in width and the depth is 2.5 inches at the greatest point. They have numerous crevices/grooves and odd angles... but strange or unique enough to be repurposed into something amazing!!!

You can find these at the Apex ReStore for $8.00 each.

Swing by the Apex thrift shop and help us come up with some clever solutions for these cool tiles! Purchase one for $8.00 and send us pictures of your crafty re-use! Send the picture/s, a brief description of what it is, what you used and how you accomplished it, and your name (if you are OK with us posting it).
