Brainstorm number 9 is coming to you live from the Sockholm suburbia.
A Swedish reader Anna sent them over. She works in a shop and these are actually supports on which lampshades get delivered on. As she can't bare putting then in the trash she's brought a whole bunch of them in all three sizes home ( so would I have!).
As soon as I saw these my brain started to itch to get to work but I did ask Martin and our loyal friends Sanna and Sebastian for their opinions too and here are our suggestions.
How about using the biggest one as a cake stand?
After the holidays Anna can use a few for storing her string lights.
By covering them in plastic they could be made into a kid's drum set.
A bit of cling film with a few holes poked for air circulation and Anna has herself some instant garden cloches.
Also in the garden they could be used as trellises.
Imagine serving sea food platters on them. What a feast!
Since Anna has quite a few she can connect them with metal wire and cover the structure in rice paper and make a Noguchi inspired lamp.
We're past Halloween but next year Anna can scare her neighborhood at a new level.
By sewing a bag with drawstring for the largest frame it could be used for storage. Imagine a whole row of these on a shelf. Cute. if you ask me.
Speaking of cute, how about turning some into a set of play furniture by attaching little wooden tops?
Those are our ideas. Like I said, Anna has quite a few of these so more suggestions are welcome. Bring 'em on!
