Guess what this terrarium is made from! (And have you voted yet today?)

Forklift Fan Melanie McMillin shared her beautiful terrarium with us.  Can you guess what she used to make it?

She explains, “Two coordinating ceiling light remnants, repainted to match, make a perfect plant terrarium.”

Check out that vase off to the left, too!  She constructed it with an old fence plank,  a vintage bottle, and some basic hardware.  Here’s a close-up of how she affixed it:

Now that’s some nice upcycling!

Like Melanie, are you grateful to have a local reuse center where you can hunt for fun parts & reclaimed pieces?  If so, please take a second to vote for us in the eBay Shine award contest!

We have been chosen from among 2,400 small businesses nationwide to be one of 15 finalists, and we need your votes to win.  If we get the most votes, we can win up to $10,000, plus publicity and technical assistance. This will help us reach a larger online audience, which means we can do more to lift up communities here in the DC area!  We can keep more cool stuff out of landfills, offer more green jobs, and provide more free materials to community groups, seniors, vets, and neighbors in need.

Remember, you can vote once a day,  every day, from June 26 – July 14.  

A few seconds of your time could do a lot of good.  Please ask your friends to vote too!
