Saw this posted by another CD poster (she deserves the credit for this find) and there are some great
functional and decorative ideas here. Thank you NK.

Hmm, a lot of those seem sort of ridiculous but I admit to thinking the old color slides on the door window is pretty cool and I wouldn't be averse to plugging holes in my wooden fence with brightly colored marbles. I probably won't do either of those but that was a fun read, thanks!

For the most part I can admire the creativity but would never use one of those ideas. The tennis racket would be about the closest thing to even consider in my mind. As an aside, they don't tell you the cost to make these objects d' art either. I would suspect that some of them might be not only hard to do for the average person but also costly. I should also say that I am a creative individual but those ideas are too way out for me.

^^^They are creative and most of them are very simple to do by either using screws, hot glue, wire or twine.
Many of those items can be found around the house or are dirt cheap at flea markets or garage sales. The boom box, drums,
shopping cart chair and the bike faucet are the ones that are more complicated (someone skills are required to do those).
The others are pretty simple and require personal time - using screws, hot glue ad assembling lamp parts.

I love the globe lamps!

I also really like the marbles in the fence and the bike sink.

Guess my practical side rules my creative side. I have a hard enough time cleaning my three "normal" bathrooms without cleaning a bike in a bath. Soap spills and water drips.

Oh - the #14 colander! I have one of these from my mom/childhood, and most people my ancient age have them from their moms too. Guess they were dime-store (back when we called 'em that) items in the 50's-60's?
