RETRO KITCHEN SCALE

I have had these pictures laying around for a while now. It was a small "restoring/getting it to match my stuff" project I did a couple of months ago. It all started with one of those frequent visits to the local thrift store, where I had seen this little kitchen scale quite a few times.

I was so loving the shape, but not the color and there for I just kept putting it back on the shelf. Then one day, we met again...and I knew exactly what I had to do, to make the scale fit my kitchen. 

So I brought the little thing home, disassembled him and spray painted all the parts in a nice cream color. I taped the front of the scale, so I didn't get any paint on the dial.

I think it turned out really well and he fits so perfectly with my kitchen colors, but the really cool thing is, he actually works. 

This has been one of my favorite "old treasure find" projects.

Have a great day.

NEW SHADE OF LIGHT

For a long time I have been looking for a new lamp for our bedroom, and I wanted to find something that I could give a touch of my own. (Almost never buy something bright new).
 
 
And then one day, it was right there in front of me, in a charity shop, looking all brown and sad, just begging to get a makeover. So I bought the poor thing, payed like nothing (3EUR) - just love a good bargain:-)
 
 
Back home I went through my fabric and ribbons, came up with this combination and started to create a new life for this lamp. A life that he'd probably never would have imagined. :-)
 
 
It only took me a couple of hours to finish this project "new shade of light" and I´m very happy about the result.
 
 
Have a wonderful Thursday.

PONCHO LAMP

This lamp is a small project I finished a couple of weeks ago and now it's finally hanging above the coffee table. It's a project inspired by a great idea we came across a while back, when reading one of our favorite blogs...Under Mammas Vingar. It's the blog of Smulan, a very talented blogger and photographer and I do encourage you all to visit her beautiful and inspiring site.
The lamp is made of flea market finds, an old lampshade and a great, fluffy, white poncho. It was like a match made in heaven. Didn't even have to cut of the fabric, except for some minor adjustments at the bottom. The poncho has been attached by folding the edge around the lampshade and then stitched with a sewing-machine.
 
Have a great Monday! /Sussi
