De-cluttering seems to be the mantra these days…and in our home, S is someone who follows it to the T and I think twice, thrice and sometimes more than that before I throw away things. I don’t mind clearing out unwanted stuff, but even as I am about to put away something I don’t need, I wonder if I could use it in some other way. So, a couple of unusable non-stick pans, ladles and other gadgets find their way back to the chest again without his knowledge in the hope of getting a makeover. And, they remain there until Dh finds them again…:) the story continues for every other nook in the home.

Now, give your discarded kitchen gadgets to a creative genius like Gilles Eichenbaum, a Paris based designer and he’ll transform them into beautiful pieces of functional art.
|You think this is a good way to end the day?|
He uses discarded kitchen utensils like pastry molds, coffee pots, frying pans, forks, teapots and things like that to create stunning pieces of light fixtures. I bet these pieces make sure fire conversation starters. I’ll let the pictures make the talk for now.
|Kettle and pastry molds get a makeover, cool na?|

|I am drooling over this piece now..|
Now, guess what's Eichenbaum's tag line? "Garbage cans are talented!". How true! I just wish he stayed somewhere nearby so that I could send him a truckload of my pots and pans and get them transformed. :)
