These driftwood lamps were odd lamps that we had around, sorry no before photos. I have fixed the driftwood on with (Uncle Bill's) copper wire and screws. The Uncle Bill reference is a joke in our family as he used to fix everything with copper wire, as he had managed to acquire rolls of the stuff, I'm not sure how. It was a long time ago and he had an eye for a bargain. I'm privileged to still have a roll.
The last upcycled item is not pretty. I needed a potting bench, and we had an old barbecue that no longer cooked like it should and we have one that does. Soooo...it works better now as a potting bench. Those are miniature sweet peas you can see potted up there - especially for pots as apparently they don't need staking up. Grown from seed. We'll see.
