Found these inspirational, cute showrooms at lovely Alsta gardens a while back. I think the recycling of old things shown were quite ingenious.
tractor seat table, coffee pot flowerpot, rake candlestick
waffle iron candlestick
Can't decide on a favourite (apart from the gorgeous big rose tea cup of course), but the transformation of the rake is rather fascinating. It sure made me look at the stuff in kitchen cupboards and garden shed in a whole other light. Come summer there may be some nifty iron transformation going on in this residence too.
