UPCYCLING FOR THE ‘HOOD

As we were visiting the site of a full remodel we are doing in Pasadena, I noticed the contractor had a couple chandeliers from the demolition, chucked in a corner to remove and I had an idea for it’s afterlife.

I’m lucky to live in a neighborhood tucked inside the Los Angeles sprawl where we actually walk. I walk my daughter to her elementary school, and to my office. Silver Lake is a lovely community of artists and musicians, architects and designers who take pride in our ‘hood and take care of each other.

On our daily trek, we walk by a lovely century-old sycamore tree, adorned with a cacophony of chandeliers. The tenant of the tree is artist, Adam Tenenbaum who lovingly created the tree that warms our neighborhood.

I dropped the chandeliers off on Adam’s doorstep. He has installed a old skool parking meter to collect change for the mounting electric bills (where are you Solar City?), and hopefully he can use our donation.
