After the recent changes around here, with our new dining table, i am starting to think : “hmm…how about going for a mix and match style?”. Eclectic is one of my favorites right now! And while searching for lighting inspiration at Parrot Uncle i saw these beautiful tiffany lamps ideas!
I guess you already know it : colors and i do not have a good relationship. I do love a colorful home when i see it, but i would not add color in our home. Except for the bedroom! That’s the one room where i experiment with colors. And after adding the colorful headboard and already having colored drapes i moved to the next step. The chandelier makeover!
It started as a black table lamp from IKEA, then it changed color and lamp shade and transformed. For the past few months the lamp was left without lampshade and got lost in the closet. But today is the day it’s revived! With a brand new lampshade, it’s taken its place next to our gallery wall. Ta da…
It is finally over!!!!! That one took a lot of time! But it was worth it! Our new table lamp is great! I have been wanting to make a new one, but i was not happy with a few ideas i came up with. A visit to IKEA was the solution. I got the LAMPAN Lamp, in white. I was going for the black one, but our local store was out of it. I settled for the white and i am really glad i did.
I used crushed glass, which i glued with white glue, to decorate the lamp hat. I glued the glass one next to the other on top. As i was going i added less and less glass.
And after a few hours (and days!!!) it was finally finished!
We are enjoying its light now, waiting for pizza and beer to come!
As i was browsing the internet to find some more ideas for decorating our home i found this great idea for making a japanese lamp using very simple and cheap materials. Here’s a great tutorial from instructables.com. And here’s the lamp we created.
We used red wood paint and the base of the lamp is cardboard. We just have to get the lid a little trimmed!
