I have been concentrating a lot of my attention on lighting the past few weeks. We have a big square box of florescent lighting on our kitchen ceiling that I really don't want. Even if I did want it, we have learned that the larger florescent bulbs are being phased out, just like the regular lights bulbs have been, and that we will eventually have to replace that fixture anyway.... Music to my ears!
I know what I want to replace it with and my idea came straight out of the re- purposed light fixtures I have been seeing on the Internet... Check out these awesome light fixtures made from repurposed items.
I know these are not for everyone - but for my kitchen - they are so perfect... and what great ideas for using some items from the kitchen - and maybe even the barn or workshop!
I love all these lights for sure for a kitchen, and some of them would be awesome in other rooms of the home as well..
Imagine my surprise when I opened the new Home Hardware Catalogue and found this! Bingo! I'll take two, PLEASE!
Lets step outdoors for a moment:
This lovely shady nook was shared to me on Face book. I would love to have one of these in my garden. Can you image sitting outside on a sunny warm morning with your cup of coffee or tea and just enjoying the morning garden, bees and birds? All made from repurposed wood.
or here... old doors made into a lovely little sheltered sitting area in the garden...
And wouldn't it be cool to have this sitting on a feature rock, or wall somewhere nearby to catch your eye?
I think so...
Have a great weekend everyone!
