Before you toss that tin can in the recycling bin, take a look at this clever DIY lighting idea!
I love projects that mix different materials in unique or interesting ways. Lately, I've been on a big concrete and wood kick (like this stool we shared recently). The combination of warm wood and cool concrete has a really nice aesthetic and textural balance that I can't resist. My newest DIY obsession is this concrete and wood table lamp!
Yes, you read that right. This oh-so-classy and minimal light is made from a decidedly not classy material: used up toilet paper rolls.
We're taking last week's light-up wall art project up a notch or two with this DIY headboard idea!
Currently, all our pendant lighting needs are being met, but the next time I need something awesome (and inexpensive) to light our place, I will definitely try out this DIY origami lamp!
You guys... I love when people get crafty and turn ordinary objects into extraordinary, way-more-functional objects. Like this clever decor hack from Curbly reader Kim!
This minimalist DIY light reminds me a little bit of the (much, much more expensive) Pipe Light by Tom Dixon. While his version is made from powder coated aluminum, this clever interpretation is crafted from -- wait for it -- a discarded cardboard poster tube!
This DIY tree branch lamp is a unique project that could easily be scaled to your liking (a desk lamp, perhaps?)!
We've been seeing brass, gold, and copper making a big splash in home decor for the last few years, but these metallic pieces usually carry a hefty price tag, especially in the lighting department (um, have you seen the prices of Lindsay Adelman chandeliers??). It's always exciting, then, to see people get creative with inexpensive materials and come up with something super stylish and on-trend, like this brass and copper pipe light!
Branches, twigs, and logs -- oh my! Turn this readily available material into stylish decor accessories. Stumped? Here are 15 awesome projects to get the creative juices flowing.
I woke up to the first snow of the season last week and couldn't help but get a little excited for the magical, wintery days ahead. It's still a bit warm to line the walks with these crystal-like beauties, but come December, you better believe I'm making a whole bunch of DIY ice lanterns!
Just when I was getting a little antsy with the ombre trend*, THIS project comes along. Dang you, awesome lighting projects! You get me every time.
Inspired by one of my favorite lights (the Frame Pendant by Iacoli & McAllister if you're curious), this DIY version is equally colorful and a fraction of the cost. Also? The perfect project for a rainy and cold autumn afternoon!
Got a cardboard box? Awesome! Turn that sucker into a pendant light!
