very difficult ...for the foot, I think of these little candles for dish warmer or candle jars. But, these yellow metal grids, I don't find. Were they yellow, or did you paint them?
Perhaps part of a colander or strainer? though I am not sure how you would get the solid edging all around ...
A plastic coaster, and can you make one my size?
Bea is correct on the foot, tea light holders but not the top. CM
They look like fly swatters to me. Great repurposing with no fly guts. LOLSusan
Katherine... warmer C
Bea they were yellow and not made of metal. C
And Susan Wins!!!!! They were NEW flyswatters by the way. Congrats. C
Very clever, CM and Susan!How did you mold them, CM?
congratulations, Susan ...We don't have yellow flyswatters in France :) Not sure at all, it would be easy to find flyswatters here. If they are made of plastic, how do you give them a form? They should remain flat, shouldn't they? Did you use some glue?
I sliced off the handle then heated the oven tp 200 degrees. I put a heavy ceramic bowl on a frying pan into the oven, door open, then the flyswatter in the bowl. I set a heavy mug on top of that and watched. When the plastic started getting soft I pressed down on the mug then tossed it into a pan of water in my sink.(carefully) to set it. :) It rained yesterday... I was bored...C
and there was no fly to disturb you
Ha ha! it seems unfair to penalize you as they do not has these in France. I'm sure the French don't have flies! I think they are much too elegant! C
It seems that I am the only one here who has a history with flies, since I recognized them immediately. But then again, I did grow up on a farm, and I do spend some time in cottage country here in Ontario - both excellent places to become familiar with flies. I do envy Bea for being blissfully unaware of the items of fly destruction that are so much a part of my culture. Flies can be very annoying, and are not known for their cleanliness.Susan
Dear Susan,Of course, we have flies and probably flyswatters in France, I was joking.We even have a great choice:http://www.twenga.fr/dir-Jardin-et-Bricolage,Anti-nuisibles,Tapette-a-moucheswe had these items, when I was a child and lived in the country. There were farms there, and cows, and flies. I live now in South of France, no cow around me, and nearly no fly. I have mosquitos, wasps, hornets and also very small flies, which live in the olive trees and are very nasty. have a nice day,
These chairs are amazing! Ingenius idea.
I do know flyswatters too, Susan - Australia is well known for its flies! And indeed my mother has flyswatters just like these, though maybe in other colours. I don't have one - somehow there seem to be fewer flies in Darwin, though plenty out in the bush - march flies that bite as well as bush flies. The blow flies seem to live mostly down south, though.I was thinking mainly of the rounded shape in guessing colanders - I'm very impressed with how you made them, CM! Maybe you should be bored more often! ;-)
Well my friends, I thought it odd as I walked by an asile in the market Thurday that was a Bar B Q promotion... and there on the rack were these 99 cent flyswatters. Yes retro, 1950's style with the Heintz catsup and mustard. Not too appetizing, I thought. But I had just been looking at the vitra Bertolia diamond chair, and wondering where I could find suitable screening to make one as they are 1:6 scale and my MH1 is 1:12 scale...And there they were in bright yellow plastic.The clerk raised his eyebrows as I purchased a bottle of California champagne and two flyswatters... C
You have a great eye to be able to visualize these chairs from fly swatters! Very creative.
Those chairs look great. Thanks for sharing how you made them :-)
