Buried deep in my closet, I have a secret of sorts that is overflowing. It is a box that holds supple leathers, silky fabrics, and strips of bass wood. These lovely materials peek out in a magnificent array of colors and textures. I have carefully gathered these treasures overtime. And at the risk of sounding like a hoarder, I admit that it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to ‘save’ something in hopes of repurposing.
Like this drainage mat below, for example, which a former co-worker of mine handed to me, while cleaning her desk. I was going to put it up in the resource center’s miscellaneous box, but I somehow knew that I could make something with it for La Petite Maison. I liked the sculptural form of the plastic. And at first thought I was going to make mini-art with it. But it was hard to manually cut. So I held on to it for about a year.
This is definitely a more abstract version of the Tord Boontje panels. But they look great in the space and are ever so lovely as a modern shower curtain.
Forgive me folks, but I am saving the big reveal for another two weeks. So all you get for now is this mini-project peek.
I know, I am such a tease.
