Lego Creations For The Home You Wish You Had Created!

I recently stumbled across an article in the Daily Mail from 2009 where James May created an entire house from Lego! Completely crazy but completely genius at the same time. It made me wonder whether people do actually have functional items in their home made out of Lego. So off I went to scour the internet and here is what I found…

Who would have thought to make a kitchen island out of Lego? Not me, that’s for sure but I would not mind one like this. That is if I had a bigger kitchen.

For those of you that have a small kitchen, how about putting a Lego table in your dining room?

You could then light up your dining room with your matching Lego lamp.

If you are looking for something spectacular in the office to wow you clients then you could do what this office did and use Lego as a room divider. Pretty amazing! In fact you can see the images from the big build here.

This Lego shelving might be something that I could use in my home office/craft room. I could even colour co-ordinate the Lego brick to match the colour scheme.

Believe it or not this is a fully working radiator made to look like Lego.

I think it is official…Lego is cool!

Stop, Look, Listen: Things to do with used magazines

I regularly look at my coffee table and feel guilty about the sheer number of magazines I buy, although I do assure you that they are not all trashy women’s gossip mags. Every time I take my latest stack over to the recycling bin I can’t help thinking that there MUST be some way of reusing them. So this week I decided to be pro-active and did a search on the internet for magazine uses.

This is such a clever idea from DIYLife and something I would never have thought of. This is definitely on my future project to do list. I can just see it in my craft room/home office now…

The Buff and Blue has a tutorial showing how to make this mirror frame made from old magazines. The different colour papers makes for a really effective, colourful and unique mirror.

Along similar lines Craft bits has a tutorial to help us turn ordinary and boring wall clocks into works of art using old magazines.

These are a very clever idea. Saved By Love Creations has a tutorial about how to make these coasters.
