Workshop Series 3 or buzz, buzz…light!

In Workshop Series 2 or that’s not gray hair, it’s paint!  I layered and layered and layered on the paint.

It was definitely worth all the layers of paint because the walls of black paper painted creamy white look terrific and my little workshop is so bright!

Now I need power. We had an outlet right next to the workshop but we had it rewired for the jacuzzi {worth the sacrifice}. Now the best outlet is one from the garage. Since budget is a concern the simplest and cheapest thing is to run a long outdoor electrical cord through PVC to the workshop.

Easy Peasy!

Then I found a perfect old jewelry box at our local antique store’s yard sale to use as my “electrical box”. Just wanted a place to curl up the cord and get it out of sight. Why are outdoor electrical cords ugly orange?

The flexible metal electrical tubing is just for looks!

My dad gave me an old rusty funnel about 10 years ago that I would at time hang on the wall or use in a table setting adding fresh flowers. Now I have a new use for my great rusty funnel…a hanging buzz, buzz…light!

I used a pig ring as a way to hang the funnel up {yes, and kind used in real pigs to keep them from rooting}.

This is my favorite thing…so far.
