Recycled Chandeliers

I have been so naughty about writing and visiting all your fabulous wonderful blogs. My past week has been a tornado of work, and I think it might be getting back to its usual pace now!!! I so apologize for the absence and to show my appreciation, I'll be giving away a prize this weekend! So be on the lookout tomorrow...

Ever since I spyed this trash chandelier in the Two's Company Dallas showroom this past January, I've been seeing them everywhere.

I don't know if it's a trend or I'm just now noticing these beautiful reclaimed art pieces. Discarded pieces of "trash" can really be so intriguing!

  1. A-MAZING. That is the coolest post! I think my fave was the coffee stirrers....and the clear glasses lenses. my son is obsessed w/ paperclips. maybe i should get him that kit?

  2. Pretty amazing and extremely clever. Did you see the anthropologie bottle art piece that Terri posted about. I have a thing for bottles and just did a draft on a post about bottles so this was really interesting to me. Clever, clever people,Kathysue

  3. These are so up my alley! Love them! Thanks for sharing :)

  5. That's so cool. A chandelier made out of markers.

  6. so can someone tell me how I could get the one from plastic water bottles? It's teardrop shaped and white and blue. My granddaughter would love it in her room!
