TURN CHAMPAGNE CORKS
INTO FRENCH CAFE CHAIRS
Here's a fun use for those popped
champagne corks from last night.
Detach the wire wrapping and cap
from the champagne cork.
Just 6 turns of the wire will lift it off.
(Trivia: It always take 6 turns,
no more, no less, to open any sparkling wine
or champagne bottle. No matter the winery or country.)
Just follow the pictures above.
You'll need a wire snips and pliers,
and you can make your own French cafe chair.
(The Chandon chair is my handiwork!)
DESIGN WITHIN REACH stores ran a contest
recently, calling for entries of miniature chairs.
Materials: two champagne corks, foil, wire, cap.
No glue, no solder, nothing else.
They received thousands of entries, worldwide.
An exhibit toured their stores across the nation.
