Art in Unexpected Places: 10 Ideas to Add Style to Every Space in Your Home

Nice roundup. I'm interested in information on creating waterproof art--such as the outside, bathroom & kitchen pieces. I'm gonna see what I can find on Google, but maybe you have some ideas, too?

I know there's a great deal of art and beauty in the variety of perfume bottles available, but I wish people would only display the empty ones!  Perfumes have oils in them which, like cooking oils, go rancid from light and warmth.  I keep all mine in their original boxes, in a big cardboard bo xin the linen cupboard, which is on the lamding and usually quite cool.  Some of them are years old , yet still smell fresh. 

For display, I keep empties of all shapes and sizes on the window sills of my living room, where I can enjoy them for more hours in the day.
