Today I’m going to show one of my diy projects hoping to inspire someone to see new possibilities in ordinary things. One day coming home I spotted a lamp left next to the garbage containers. I saw potential in it so I brought it home to see if it actually functioned. It did, so I started thinking what to do with it.
The glass shades were broken and ugly so they needed to go.. The frame was okay after i cleaned it well.
So, new shades for the lamp… I came across these Skurar white metal flowerpots in Ikea (1,75 euros/pot) and I realized that they’d make excellent shades for the lamp if turned upside down. They have a pretty lace pattern in them.
I drilled holes sized to match the lamp and attached them to the lamp. This is the finished lamp:
As good as new! This was such an easy diy project and took under an hour to make. Total costs: under 6 euros! Now this lamp is in our kitchen making everyday brighter!
