Katie bought this black, stick, floor lamp from Target. She decided to glam it up with some very UNglamorous items, which included, among other things, a bunch of 2-liter Coke bottles and duct tape. Get ready, cuz this is gonna blow your mind....
Remember the plastic spoon rose? Turns out that is just the tip of the iceberg as far as spoon-crafting is concerned. Take for example these (dare I say?) gorgeous spoon pendent lights.
Holes in spoons negate their intent, but they also take artist's Daisuke Hirawa creation (pictured above) into
It's no secret, we love a good DIY lighting project here at Curbly. Whether that's building your own from scratch or simply giving that old shade a makeover, we love lamps. This particular project, though, is hands down the easiest one we've ever seen! If you can tie a knot, you can make this (feathers optional).
Serious props to Stephanie for thinking waaay outside the box in turning this papasan chair into a pendant light. Makes me wanna take a look around the house to see what other objects
Jackie fell in love with DWI's Cellula chandelier, which is pictured above, but its $2,730 price tag made it OUT of reach. Jackie then went to work, starting off with a visit to IKEA where she snagged a Tidig pendant. From there it was just a matter of
Amy was so smitten with her friend Susan's DIY capiz shell chandy, that she made one herself using Brenna's tutorial, which she--Susan--spotted at Design Sponge. Got all that? No matter how the project got into Amy's hands, I'm just glad it did, because it is one of the best DIY capiz shell chandy's I've seen. The supplies to make one are deceptively ordinary
I'm getting into making lamps and furniture out of rustic vintage finds. Check out this sweet vintage meat hook chandelier I made. It has a vintage style rayon-covered twisted cord which is about 20 feet long with a switch on it. I'm pretty pumped on it.
Of course, I'll have to part with it when someone buys it in our etsy shop. (http://www.etsy.com/listing/83617200/vintage-meat-hook-converted-to-vintage)
Some more neat vintage stuff we've...
The DIY part of the AstroStar ($22) star projector is its assembly. A fun project for you and the kiddos, if you have any. If you don't, even better, because
When Lindsay says she has a drum shade in her house, I'm sure most of us would picture the regular drum shades, round and generally unexciting. But what she had envisioned and brought to fruition was something a little more literal.
The Random Light by Moooi has inspired many a DIY variation (including this cool hemp version), but this is the first time I've seen the aesthetic translated into wire--and I love it! It's a perfect statement piece for just about any style interior from contemporary to farmhouse, eclectic to modern. Of course, the best part is you can make it yourself!

A standing 'O' to Diane for finding a clever way to reuse tuna cans and thrift store finds to create stylish outdoor lighting. Pictured above are the basic materials she used to create the lamps. As for the outcome, here's one traditional version, but....
Colors, glorious colors, oh how I love you! I especially love when you show up in unexpected places and blow my mind with your brilliance. Because seriously, what you're doing for this DIY pendant light is OUT. OF. CONTROL.
Yup, this little chandelier is made out of candy. Not sure of its longevity or if it would attract wee beasties, but for temporary applications, it doesn't get much more charming. Laura is our
All this talk of kitchens and cooking spaces and whatnot has me looking around at all the ways to spruce up my dining room. I got a little sidetracked when I saw this alternate use for a cheap plastic placemat. Forget the kitchen, we're headed to the bedroom.
