I recently read Pia Jane’s review of Mark and Sally Bailey’s new book The Recycled Home and was instantly intrigued by the quote she included in her intro:
“Use what you’ve got, be true to the structure of your house and the materials it is made from… think of your home as a delicious experiment.”
So I hightailed to the Bailey’s Home and Garden site to further explore all their gorgeous, organic pieces and ended up with tons of new ideas to “assign” to Bryan. Now that the pear is behind him, we’ve been creating a little inspiration folder of projects for him to tackle next. There are lots of bigger pieces (like furniture) in the hopper, so these are meant to be smaller items that he can churn out with scrap wood after the girls are in bed.
Topping the list are this chunky toothbrush holder and wooden pebble incense holder. (I’m crazy for incense, and yes I do realize that I’m exposing a smidge of my hippie leanings here…)
