This kind of imaginative use will go a long way to making the world a better place, and a prettier one too. Here are some thoughts for your own projects:
- Almost any old, interesting object makes for a great lamp, I have used, old toys, pulleys as well as all sorts of old industrial glass ware.
- If you are at a loss how to adopt your idea into an illuminating project, take your pieces down to your local lighting store, you might be surprised how quickly your idea is embraced by the people there
- Old recycled materials, such as wood, old tiles etc make terrific additions to tables, and give them an instant patina.
- When shopping at flea markets etc, be creative, an old classic hub cap, makes a great fruit bowl, with an industrial edge. An old sari or antique textile can be quickly reserviced into a table runner, napkins or a terrific wall hanging.
Scout out all the flea markets and sales in your area, they can be a wealth of opportunity,,,,, remember shop to save the planet!
