I am not a big fan of DIYs …. however every now and then I find a DIY project that not only impresses me but inspires me as well…. like this beautiful table lamp that Ryan McElhinney made from old toys.
I just love the idea of using your kids favorite toys or things (when they are older) as art instead of putting them in a box or displaying them on an old shelf! ….. This is one DIY project I think I might make someday!
I have made a few changes on how to make this lamp (just to make it more professional looking!!!) To make the lamp you first need to get a plain and simple white lamp with a wide base and shade… then arrange the toys to form a nice looking base and bond them all together with super glue and when you are satisfied with the shape, paint the lamp with several coats of paint and one coat of polyurethane lacquer…. et voilà

If my life had a sound track this music piece below will def be included!!!… Not because it is one of my favorite or because I always listen to it (which I do) … but because if there was ever a music piece that can get me through anything it would be this!!! Its probably the only music piece that can calm me down and lift me up at the same time!
I love the concept or the balance of “yin and yang” that interior designer Jiun Ho uses in his interiors. He has an Asian aesthetic but balances it with western luxury. His interiors are not too masculine nor too feminine. Tailored, elegant and with a touch of whimsy. Just the way I like it!.
