Creative Uses for Yard Sale Finds

I didn't follow my own advice when I recently spotted an old brass fire screen at a neighborhood yard sale.

I didn't need it for a fireplace, so I snapped a photo and kept shopping. Days later, I realized it would have made a perfect privacy screen for the litter box. The cats would have still had side access, and I wouldn't have to face their facilities head on each time I walk into the bathroom.
