Telephone shelf

4 comments

I saw a photo that had been blown up and put on canvas of the top of an old telephone booth that was red, chipped and a wee bit wonky. I thought - I love that piece!

"Sparky"

6 comments

Re-imagined SUPER BOOSTER battery charger. "Sparky" was inspired by one of the movie trailers for Box Trolls... I don't argue, when the inspiration comes I run with it! : ) Am I the only one that destroys his work space with every project? I swear it takes longer to clean up the last project's remains than it does to finish the current project!

Using Picture Frame Samples

5 comments

I was given these by a local store. Um. Last year! They called me up and said - we have no clue what to do with these. But they are fun. And they really don't need to be in the dump. We figured if anyone could do something to save them. You can. Sooooo. I did.

i think doors have to be one of the most simple repurposing for functionality items out there! So many things can be done! The need around here is function and organization. This was created to cover just that!
