It’s pretty awesome that the NY Times has published this guide to rewiring a lamp. While, having three experts to call when having a diy project like this is a luxury afforded only to reporters, it’s actually a good guide to the technical side of rewiring a lamp. There are so many beautiful things that we throw away instead of fixing or finding other purposes for- it’s nice to see this article.
Seeing that it’s Earth Day, I’m looking for some other great projects for reusing materials that I have around.
Recycled Lightbulb Chandelier from Readymade. I pretty much all things light related, and I hate throwing away old light bulbs, so this chandelier is the optimal project for me! I can’t wait to amass the amount of light bulbs I will need to make this for my studio!
Monogrammed napkins from a vintage sheet by Leethal. Genius! They are so pretty and are so eye catching as napkins. I think I’m going to try to make these this weekend!
Have a happy Earth Day!
After a tough knitting year for me- I’ve found a project that I’m excited about knitting! Finally! I’ve designed this cute monster blanket for my friends expected baby.
It’s superwash wool
All garter stitch
With this fun little edging.
I’ll be sure to share when it’s blocked! I’m planning on writing up the pattern too!
I thought this Etsy Friday I would share a few geeky thing that I’ve been eyeing on Etsy. Gotta wear your geek proudly, ya know?
This Recycled Circuit Board Necklace by Amanda Preske is a favorite of mine. I actually just bought several things from her shop- I love how she reuses circuit-boards, but also how modern and funky the patterns are. Also- as a shop owner, she was a delight to do business with.
