Usefulness has a lot to do with need.
The old birdcage hanging from the rafters. Nice, but no birds here, And really, just a dust- catcher.
Now a lamp. Because the old shade crumbled and this cage just fit on the wire support. We took the bottom and the perch and the hook to hang off. And the door even opens so I might work the switch.
An UN-Doing worth Doing. An opportunity to weave. A temporary place for loose scraps and of course another way to look through cloth. Then, lets not forget, most of all A LAMPSHADE for the lamp I use and LESS useless STUFF. Multitasking.
The leftover parts, well, plans for those. Later. But not too much later or they will become stuff.
And speaking of weaving, for all you German speaking clothmates...
