Swapping it Soon

First of all- Congrats to Carla S!  You are now the proud owner of a wooden pineapple bowl!  I'll be e-mailing you shortly, so be on the lookout. Aside from finishing up this flip, I'm gearing up for the next round of Swap it Like it's HOT!


Once again arranged by the lovely Charlotte at Ciburbanity.  I'll be posting my final project on Wed October 7th, but I wanted to share my challenge with you before that.

If you don't recall from the last round of swapping, with a budget of $10, we all sent another blogger/DIYer a thrifted find in need of a revamp.  Ever since I recieved my treasure from Tasha from Designer Trapped in a Lawyers Body I've been staring at it trying to figure out 2 things: firstly- what in the blazes IS is??  and secondly- what in the blazes do I DO with it???


While I'm still in search of the answer to the first question (If you have any inkling, share in the comments!!), after weeks of it sitting next to my computer mocking me, I finally have a plan of what to do with it!

I clearly am not going to give all my plans away, but I will reveal that they will most likely involve a couple light kits from IKEA, a dowel, and maybe a brass bowl or 2. *insert evil laughter here*  Are you intrigued yet?  Fingers crossed that I can make it happen as planned!

How would you re-envision this old rustic rolling pin muddler head basher wood thing?
