I made this mushroom-style footstool from a cheap plastic bucket and a pre-cut round piece of wood from the home improvement store.
One day I was helping my mom trim her crepe myrtle tree, and I thought there had to be something I could do with the cool, organic looking branches. So I stuck one in a pot and covered it with cheap craft store stuff :)
This chandelier started out as a plain white thrift store chandelier. It's the height of kitsch, but I love it.
