Want an instant makeover for your IKEA uplighter? Here’s a quick and cheap dress up trick from make flickr photo pool member neonarcade [via make]. “I dressed up my old IKEA lamp with some leftover post-it notes,” he writes, “just make sure you use a cool bulb, like a flourescent.”
The IKEA NOT floor lamp would make a nice candidate for this hack. I like the ethereal glow, retro chic and of course, the quick but dramatic fix. Nice work, neonarcade.
