Shed some light ...

When it comes to unique lighting, DIYers have no shortage of creativity. Just look at some of their unique creations using items easily found at home.

Kitchen goods seem to inspire lots of crafters who upcycle vintage moulds, bowls, plates and funnels to fuel their lighting passion.

There are always a selection of bottles that make their mark on illumination. The wine bottle must be the most upcycled choice for chandeliers.

Sometimes, all you need is an interesting lampshade with a little boho charm.  It's a simple DIY project even for a crafting novice.  One lampshade wire skeleton and strips of remnant fabric tied to the spine can fulfill almost any bohemian fantasy. Add ornamentation for a 'more is more' approach.
