I Once Was A Washing Machine Drum…

…but look at me now! Well, that’s what I imagine Silvana would shout if she had a voice.

She’s graduated from wash drum to statement lamp and side table all in one. I love the pattern created from the light shining through the holes in the sides.

Silvana has been lovingly restored by Reestore and costs £350.

The girl done good.

Zincwhite

Continuing my theme of reusing things from earlier today, I wanted to tell you about another shop that’s had me hankering recently. Zincwhite reuse, recycle, remould, remodel and reinvent items to create brand new things for you, your home and your kids. I love their strapline:

‘Where discarded objects become desirable again’

These scatter cushions are like the building blocks you had when you were a kid. Regress to your childhood when you get bored watching telly by building cushion houses and Godzilla-ing them to your heart’s content. They’re £65 for the set.

Zincwhite have taken artists’ old paintbrushes and turned them into pretty and unique necklaces. You can also get them from Designers Makers. They come with details of who donated the paintbrush which is a really nice touch and they’re under £25 each.

My favourite piece from Zincwhite is their personalised musical television. They take a clockwork toy television and turn it into a moving story using your own pictures. I really, really want one. Go to their website to see the moving image. The price is on application.
