It’s pretty awesome that the NY Times has published this guide to rewiring a lamp. While, having three experts to call when having a diy project like this is a luxury afforded only to reporters, it’s actually a good guide to the technical side of rewiring a lamp. There are so many beautiful things that we throw away instead of fixing or finding other purposes for- it’s nice to see this article.
Seeing that it’s Earth Day, I’m looking for some other great projects for reusing materials that I have around.
Recycled Lightbulb Chandelier from Readymade. I pretty much all things light related, and I hate throwing away old light bulbs, so this chandelier is the optimal project for me! I can’t wait to amass the amount of light bulbs I will need to make this for my studio!
Monogrammed napkins from a vintage sheet by Leethal. Genius! They are so pretty and are so eye catching as napkins. I think I’m going to try to make these this weekend!
Have a happy Earth Day!
