And my jaw, if it was capable, would have literally hit the floor over the incredibly beautiful chandelier (YES, chandelier!) made from baby food jars and wire and old barrel hoops... I mean, it's enough to make me try to hunt down old barrel hoops and take a fan out of one of my rooms to make room for it!
I honestly couldn't believe how awesome each project was. I also feel like getting my hands on some bamboo now to make trays!!! What great drawer dividers in themselves, besides the cute paper mache ones she makes out of old takeout box lids...
I just have to stop writing now because I'd keep writing for forever and never get to making my hanging lamp out of a cut up milk carton...
My friends and I LOVE the tote bag made from Coffee Bags that aren't recyclable. We give them away to friends to use as reusable shopping bags !
The winter months can be kind of a bummer, but this book really got me motivated -- I've already started 2 projects.... her ideas are fantastic and leave plenty of room for artistic license.
Pros: Good looking objects that you could use for home decor, or selling online; Very inspirational! You will rethink what you throw in your recycling bin! I've always kept solid metal objects, metal scrap, etc., but would never think to reuse cheap plastic grocery bags -- but Susan shows you how to make them into thick, functional lamp shades.
Cons: I would never use office staples or cheap glue to assemble an object when I could wire or solder something, but then again, that also inspired me to think of different ways to assemble some of the projects.
I hope that Susan will write another book soon. I'd love to see what else she's come up with. My sisters and I will post photos as we complete our projects.
