Over in South Africa, Katie Thompson of Recreate has caught the same upcycling bug that is sweeping through the U.S. via our etsy.com legions. You gotta love how she has turned an old Hoover floor polisher into a floor lamp. (Except that so many of us, now that we are installing VCT, are in the market for vintage floor polishers of our own. I know I am.) And oh my, look at the vintage kitchen scales turned into clocks, with vintage porcelain bowls affixed on top. The colors and patina on these are just as sweet as can be and hey, these are everyday-practical, too.
Thanks, Katie, for sharing these images — wonderful work!
