Creative Cabin Kitsch

Or “How to Decorate on a Pull String”

On my family’s recent trip to upstate New York, we stayed in a log cabin in the town of  Tupper Lake, in the heart of the Adirondacks. This cabin had everything you would need on a trip filled with lake activities, mountain hiking, and exploring. It also had a few surprises that you wouldn’t expect in a cabin.

The family that owns the cabin must entertain a lot, and have a great sense of humor. They had plenty of room for friends and family. How else can you explain their choice of lights in the kitchen?

Cabin Light Cheese Grater

Yes, those are box graters used for shredding everything from cheese to zucchini!

Apparently, this is a thing online.

But wait – there’s more! There is also a coordinating “chandelier”.

Cabin Light with Piano

It looks like an Ikea utensil holder with metal pull strings hanging down. While I couldn’t find an exact match online, I did find a site that shows other great lights made out of  kitchen items here. Now that is recycling taken to the next level!
