MAKEone


For most DIY afficionados, the main force that drives them is the feeling of accomplishment that they get from completing a project. This is very true for me which is why I love to customize anything to my needs. We are after all very different as individuals so I don't see why we have to settle for something cut-and-dried.

Oh yeah, it's also fun to de-construct something and give it another life. Like some of the projects you'll see here.

RIVER ROCK PAPER WEIGHT

Since we live close to a river, combing the banks for interesting shaped rocks has replaced my shell collecting habit. I know...not as exotic, so a makeover is in order. A little paint and a layer of polyurethane finish and they rock harder ^_^ This one was a gift to Sachiko Sensei for letting me help in one of the Japanese Club's events. The shape of the rock decided what graphic went on it--a light bulb lit up there and it stuck!

WALLSCROLL LAMP

I recall a time when scrolls were not mere silk-screened muslin. I guess they don't make them like they used to. After hanging so limply collecting layers of dust, these one time eye-poppers can brighten a room once more. Not-too-shabby chic!
