Trash to Treasure for Valentine's Day

We're using what we've got over here.

I mentioned that our house came complete with weird chainy light fixtures in every bathroom and ... gasp... even in the master bedroom.


Oh, you don't remember? Well, I did. 

You can read about it here if you don't believe me. 

They were very (cough) unique and (cough) fancy and (cough) grotesque.

Here are my little lovelies in all of their former glory.

And here's how I made them cool.

Lots of hearts to you, friends!

  9. Wow, they really are very cool now. I'm sure lots of people would take them off your hands now that they have seen them displayed like sculptures.
