How to: Make an Inexpensive Repurposed Placemat Lamp

How to: Make an Inexpensive Repurposed Placemat Lamp

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.   Karen of Sew Many Ways shows how she used a clearance placemat (I always see these plastic ones on clearance- awesome!) a few screws, and a battery-powered night light to create a more unique and visually appealing light for the late hours of the night.

With a placemat that compliments your decor, it would be a great artistic pice by day, and a functional piece by night.  How fun is that?  Easy, too.
