My friend removed some mirror walls, shag carpet and 70's light fixtures from his new house. I saw the pile of glass and thought to myself "Self, there's something cool to be done with that pile of glass". But I can't think of a thing! Sadly I spilled a bottle of water on my digicam and fried it, but you know the type: smoky colored beveled rectangles with a starburst in the center, they hang down. Here's the general idea:

Any ideas? Anyone?

Hmm...

I kind of like it as a lamp. I might take the crystally bits off and spray paint the metallic bits with that spray paint that looks sort of like stone or something. I'm not explaining this well, but I sprayed a floor lamp I have with the stuff to look like bumpy stone-ish stuff.

Or...take the crystals off and make a windchime/mobile/hanging art. Maybe paint them?

Doesn't Martha Stewart have a thing where she makes snowflakes out of old chandelier crystal?

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

"But why don't you scream now?" Alice asked, holding her hands ready to put over her ears again.

"Why, I've done all the screaming already," said the Queen. "What would be the good of having it all over again?"

That's not the actual lamp, all I have is the glass panes, but that ebay pic was the closest I could come to a photo. If I had a rock tumbler I'd smash it and make "sea glass", but I don't have a tumbler.  Cry
