We’ve seen skateboards transformed into everything from belt buckles to guitars. But when we spotted this rad shelving setup made from trashed skateboard decks, we just had to get a closer look.

Blogger Brook Wilhelmsen of Being Brook devised the concept to please her 10-year-old, who is “totally obsessed with skateboards,” but this awesome idea is perfect for reuse-lovers of all ages.
