Repurposed Upcycled Recreated Lamp Shades and Lighting.

Hi, and Welcome back to LilacsNDreams! I am back sharing another creative idea with you that I also adore myself too. I love to spend time looking at lamp shades that have been repurposed, upcycled, and decorated. Fascinating some of the techniques used, the materials used, and always the question of "Who would have thought?" Above you will see pictures of some ideas that have been shared by others on the internet, with their blogs, and with some of the market places too. 

Many will find lamps they like, or that they have recreated in their own way with some paint, or pieces. Once the lamp base is done there is the issue of the lamp shade. Some will buy those from a store that will fit with the character of the lamp they need it with. Many times you will see people make their own lamp shades, or upcycle ones found second hand at thrift stores, garage sales, second hand stores, and etc. There are so many things shared to either use, or give you ideas of yet something else that could be used too. 

You will find shades that have been decorated with lace, ribbon, buttons, cloth, scrap clothing, burlap, materials found, and so on. Then, you will see others that use maps, scrap paper, globes cut in half, mason jars, pyrex bowls, etc. Sometimes you will just see a naked, or skeleton shade also used. I could carry on for quite a while giving you lists of things used, and you would be amazed at some of the gorgeous ideas too. Please see the pictures above that have been created, make sure to check on, or with when you are roaming the internet too. 

I have some extra lamp shades at home myself. Hopefully I can get some things brought together, and redo some of them too. Would be a nice touch, and change to some within some of the rooms in the home.

Thanks so much for sharing your time with LilacsNDreams, and hope you enjoyed the visit. Hope to see you all again soon. Take care, and enjoy this Wednesday.

Lighting the entire area and make the Jewelry Showroom brighter. Here at, Jainsons Lights you will find most of jewelry store's lighting adopt recessed down lights, which high efficiency and energy are saving.

  3. The following most-basic attempt to seal the deal for LED develop lights is that they produce almost no warmth.
