    Default Award Cooler Display Ideas?

    I have a friend that has quite a few award coolers that she would like to display without taking up a lot of room. She's looking for ideas even if it means dismantling the coolers to just show where and when they were awarded. Any suggestions?

    I work at a horse rescue and we get a lot of donated show coolers. We find them fascinating and have decided that we want to cut them and turn them into quilts.

    This will be fantastic because our office is above the barn and gets coooooold!

    You could cut the straps and buckles off and use them for throws on the couch/spare beds/wherever.

    I've seen barns use racks like these in their show setup.

    Perhaps roll them so the show logo is seen and display on a specially made shelf (wide) at the top of the wall towards ceiling. Bring in silver trays below and cool ribbons or rosetts that you have saved. "Hall of Good time memories" and change it up from time to time. It could even be deep long shadow boxes, housing annual several rolled coolers.

    If she's willing to invest in a nice piece of furniture, what about a quilt display case/chest?

    I just saw these at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair and am in love.
