Sometimes when you live in an urban area (read: square footage of a postage stamp) you are asked to re-evaluate certain things. We have a carport that also houses our laundry, as a lot of them in this 1924 neighborhood do. It also has the garden shed, and of course we use it for parking. But when entertaining I would like to use the advantage of the solid roof (we only have a sun shield canopy in back) for some outdoor eating by candlelight. So now this little thrift store chandelier ($20), which I have been trying to place since May 2010, has a new home!
Then I hot-glued these 49c tea cups to the arms amd put tea lights in them. Then I hung it. If only every project could be this easy.
Next up, turning the washer and dryer into a banquet!
