It’s time for another installment of the series formerly known as Get Inspired and now known as Things As Beautiful As My Sisters.
In a truly shocking development my sisters liked the new name and so we are going with it.
First up how cool almost as beautiful as my sister is this cake-carrier lamp that Phebe spotted from Lillie Dale?
I’ve seen those cake carriers at thrift stores and such but it never occurred to me to turn it into a lamp. She gives a great tutorial for it on her blog and it makes me think about all the other old objects that could be transformed in a similar way.
And how beautiful and clever is this bench-from-a-bed project courtesy of Scissors and Spatulas ?
It really makes me miss working on furniture (it’s been a while but I have plans!)
Paula came across this nifty card catalog end table from Bad Rabbit. I fear I’ve missed the “we’re throwing these out” card catalogue wave though. Every time I see them they cost a mint! But I really want one!
And finally, because Paula knows of my current mania for getting organized on a budget she found this terrific and terrifically simple idea from the Family Handyman Magazine
OK, back to work on the pantry. How can dismantling one tiny room cause the rest of the house to become a chaotic mess?
Also, anyone have tips on painting the inside of a door to the outside? It takes paint a long time to fully cure and I imagine that, even if I leave it open all day to dry, when I close it the new paint is going to stick to where the door meets the door frame and it will all rip off the next morning………..
