Found Objects

Throughout my design life I have found objects that others would throw away, reclaimed them, and found new uses for them in my interiors.

French window
2 French windows were the first items - I painted them cream puff (a soft white), and eventually added mirrors in each of the 24 spaces - they now hang in my living room.  A china cabinet door given to me by my brother, Tim,  has had a mirror added to it and I painted it va va voom, (a cross between magenta and raspberry) - it, too, has found a spot in my living room.  12 clear Ball canning lids have been fabricated into a stain glass piece.
What enjoyment I have found in working with old items and giving them new life!
