Let's kick the week off with some ingenious and illuminating repurposing.  



Industrial + country = sophisticated lighting!






Glass decanters are still reasonably priced
at thrift stores and make beautiful fixtures.






How darling is this watering can pendant light?!





Hats off to this cute repurposing!






Believe it or not, this modern floor lamp was made
from recycled soda bottles.  View the tutorial here.




Let Stay
Single-serving soup cans were used for these lights.  So cute.



Inhabitat

Don't throw out small appliances that don't work.
Make interesting and unique lamps out of them.


The Chive






LOVE these tea cup ideas, don't you?




Don't toss those empty wine bottles into the recycle
bin, consider turning them in chic light fixtures. 









Yes, that's a bicycle rim and spokes!




Vintage license plates molded into a
shade and paired with an old fishing
buoy make a great nautical lamp.







And I thought old toys were just for collecting.





Moped parts made the desk lamp, above, and the light
fixture hardware, below, is comprised of motorcycle parts.








This copper Industrial Chic fixture looks like a cross between
an antique diving helmet and a vintage hair salon dryer.  Very cool.






I don't know what type of industrial parts
went into making this fixture but I like it.

The next time you start thinking about a new
lamp, think about making your own instead.

Have a great Monday!
