Recycling: the screen of a lamp with negatives

For those of you who were born after the year 95 (I don't know if we have many readers in that age group) you should know that many, many years ago, people could not see the Photo that he had just taken out with his camera in the back, but that it was stored in what the elders called reel and you had to go reveal them. After the development, they gave you, in addition to the photos, some strips of film with the so-called negatives which served in case you had to make copies (to scan the originals or talk).

Over the years these negatives They continue to accumulate in our homes (at least in mine) and we are sorry to throw them away but in reality we all know that we will not make copies of them anymore. Today I propose a recycling exercise in which you are going to give them a new use as lampshades.

To do it, you will need two screen rings (It is best to buy a cheap screen and get rid of the original) or at least one. Unit the negatives in a row for example with adhesive tape or with wires, although I think it is better to sew it through the holes that have up and down and voila! You will have a most original lamp with your memories.

When performing this craft, realize that the negatives are not going to be projected on the wall As much as you try, since the bulb is not focused enough, but it will give an interesting look to your living room or bedroom. I hope you have been as excited as I am.

American mailboxes and very original covers

I confess publicly that I love American movie mailboxes. That is why I have looked especially at these original covers, special for them, which I saw this morning in Home Improvement Ideas. They are exactly the same as the magnetized panels that we saw in our solutions to change tiles without debris.

The Invisible Garden House, the dome of Steven Spielberg has fallen in Copenhagen

I don't know if anyone is following the Steven Spilberg series called "The Dome", but this little house for the garden, created by Simon Hjermind Jensen, could have been based on the series. The Invisible Garden House has within its walls a microclimate optimized for recreational and greenhouse use. The project was built north of Copenhagen, in Denmark, in a private garden, to extend the summer feeling for the family.

The containers are always among the objects that offer more possibilities when it comes to recycling and reuse.
