Recycled Chandeliers

This fun chandelier series is called a “Hangelier.”  It’s by Organelle Design. While the repurposed hangers are evident, you might not have realized there are also recycled parts from a bicycle.

 

 

I can’t seem to decide if i like the wood or plastic version the best. What do you think?

 

Flea Market Ideas

If you love finding new ways to use old things, you’ll enjoys these two creative ideas from the Better Homes and Gardens Do It Yourself  Website for repurposing items you may have lying around or can easily find at a salvage sale. 

Inserting  heavy-gauge wire mesh in a painted door and suspending it from the ceiling with metal chains creates additional storage for pots and pans.

Turning an old light fixture on its head and filling it with fresh flowers creates an electrifying display. If the collar on your light does not have this attractive patina paint it with metallic paint to achieve a bronze or copper patina.
