I am NOT a hoarder but when something breaks or chips away, I don’t just dump it.
I think of a way to upcycle it. If I don’t come up with an instant eureka moment, I’ll place the item in a carton, waiting for the inspiration to arise. Just kidding !! I do place it in a carton – but in most cases forget about it !! Until, its time to move houses and suddenly I am facing the said item 🙂
This is one such story.
We had a fabulous chandelier in our home at Arabian Ranches. It adorned the foyer. These three bell shaped glass shades were encaged in a rustic wooden chandelier. It almost looked artistic. However that chandelier was the only item that broke during the move from that house. However this glass dome was salvaged. Now that the studio is nearly complete, I’ve been excitedly searching for items to repurpose and came across it.
I decided to turn it into a cloche.
Here’s the tutorial. Please watch it on Youtube and kindly subscribe to my YouTube channel – Naush Samama
Most of my projects involve some or all recycled materials. Its a deliberate effort to upcycle/recycle/reuse and repurpose materials around the house. I firmly believe, we should use our imagination to find a simple way to recycle items and give them a new life.
Mother nature has had enough of our rubbish ! (literally and pun intended)
This extraordinary situation presented by the Covid Crisis is also nature’s way of bringing our lives to a standstill, to re-evaluate our priorities, introspect and change some very casual but damaging habits. If not now – then when ?
Whats the one habit (that you have changed) or change that YOU have made in your life in the last 6-8 months of 2020 ?
