I know the words “stylish” and “zip tie” don’t often go together, but in the case of this DIY lamp shade I think they work mighty fine! I might even throw “quirky”, “artsy”, and “totally awesome” into the mix. Just sayin’.
Inspired by a window display at her local Anthropologie, DIY enthusiast and blogger Courtney Schutz returned home with a plan. Using an old lampshade as a base, she created a new frame from chicken wire. Then, after spray painting a whole lot of zip ties, she set about attaching them one-by-one. I think the result is striking and 100% unique. Way to go Courtney!
