Ever do silly things just for the hell of it? Well, I do and I had fun in the doing. You may look and ask, What the heck is that? I would too. This is the new spot for the computer. I painted the wall, took almost all day rewiring, fastening the surge protector, the modem and the wireless thingy to the wall.
I had my computer on a wonderful old library table that I bought for $40 twenty-plus years ago. I love this table and had used it for a desk until the purchase of a computer. It was being abused in that role. Now I have a skinny computer and skinny wooden table maybe I can use the desk for its intended purpose once again.
The fox lamp is temporarily hiding (not completely) my wires. Need to figure out some thing cutesy here because the wires head every direction. That's a problem for another day. The printer and computer now sets atop a $15 long skinny table I bought last month. Perfect height, small profile and holds what I need BUT it has no drawer. I painted it Cyber Green like the walls. Cyber Green is one of those almost a colors. It's almost a yellow and almost a green. It does compliment my Jack Horner's Plum room. These are the two colors I used on my checker board table...another side tracking fun for me project.
The circle that holds my paper is a mosaic covered coffee can which has seen it's better days. It began as a coffee can then graduated to decorated flower pot and was sitting useless. Now it holds my paper. The yellow is a cap from a can of ExpandaFoam and the two square boxes are tea containers. The small one has the lid attached to the board and you just pull the can off to access what is inside.
I've established I'm strange so bear with me. A old light switch plate and extra lid and some little plastic something were attached after being painted purple (Now why would I have a can of purple paint?) and a small chime is hanging from that. The strange white item attached to the top is an old phone jack I had just replaced with a drink ring attached. The two clear bottles hold marbles and glass fish. The lid is screwed to the board and the bottles can be removed and the items rearranged. I found two pieces of an old barrel stave and have made a shelf for my valuable Breyer Horse. I wanted the light to reflect more off the bottles but, hey, this is just a prototype.
This is where the fun comes in, opening a flood gate of ideas. This piece may not stay here long but it was an idea born to fruition and that produced different and improved ideas.
I had fun! I have a functional piece of s**t made completely from recycled things and have new modified models in my head to work on. It's sometimes crazy being me but I can guarantee I'm never bored.
Have a Gail weekend and create something strange. Enjoy.
