Hi.

I write about repurposing old things into new, home decor and sometimes stray into whimsy.

Sometimes a little DIY (and orange) goes a long way...

So, after the Great Unintentional Bathroom Remodel of 2012, I don't mind telling you I was loathe to undertake anything else for a while...BUT, the siren song of the spray can always lures me back eventually...plus, I've have some extraordinary luck in the "trash" department lately.  Case and point:  

 

Hello ORANGE!!!

 

 

I have no available space on my ceiling to hang another hardwire lamp (seriously, you can't be very tall in my house), so my Dad rewired it as a pendant.  And who DOESN'T have a bird cage hanger just sitting around the house? (Somebody had thrown this beauty AWAY.  I know, again, I was at the right place at the right time.)

 

 

I don't think I could love this any more.  I do feel slightly sad for my generous brother and sister-in-law, who relinquished this to me not ever suspecting that they were going to want it back *grin*.
