upcycling

tetra pak lamp.

I guess some of you already know this brilliant piece of upcycling craft, but this is so fabolous, that I must show it to those wo haven`t seen it yet (although I don`t like re-bloging stuff). A lamp built out of tetra paks with great light effects. See all details posted on “9gag” or a reduced (more realistic) version on “gesehenundgesehenwerden“.… weiterlesen

upcycled bicycle tube.

The original plan was to make a wristband out of a used bicycle tire as I`ve seen it on a flea market, so I bought a button plier. But all I had left at home for the moment was a used tube, so I tried to create something with that tube. It didn`t really worked out as a wristband (detail picture in the corner), so I changed my plan and made a chain protection for pants out of it. … weiterlesen

wooden horse.

Do you have some wooden wine boxes left (plus some free time) and you just don`t know what to do with them? No? But it seams like the owner of that wine shop in berlin had a great idea! You can even buy wine boxes on amazon.… weiterlesen

retro doorplate.

I organised some keys from old typewriters and computers at my favourite fleamarket (Berlin Arkonaplatz). With a regular picture frame and some glue I`ve built a doorplate with my surname out of them. Unfortunately the picture is not showing the different oldschool colours of every individual key very well.… weiterlesen

kill bills.

I stole that idea from the “superbude” hostel in hamburg, where I spent some nights a few weeks ago. So I ordered some cheap mousetraps and screwed them to my corridor wall to hold my fresh arrived letters (mostly bills :(… weiterlesen

seats.

Today I spent my afternoon at the Stasi museum (Ministry for State Security in the former GDR). There I´ve seen this nice and simple wall decoration I could easily imagine to install in my own flat. These squares are just demounted seats of used office chairs.… weiterlesen

wooden curtain.

We had a deliviery of new tables in my office. The desk tops were protected with simply pressboard crossbars around the edges. I rescued all the wood from the recycle bin to install them in my flat as a curtain. All I needed was a pelmet and some cable connectors. weiterlesen
