ideas some times come when you least expect it. mieke was holidaying in spain when the lights turned on for her ikea lamp hack.
“i bought a set of three ikea lamps last summer and because they were really cheap (19.95 GBP for the entire set, i can’t find it on the website though) and the shades were made out of paper they didn’t last all that long. until i realised i should just get some fabric and redo them, and then i realised (while holidaying in spain) that if i got some ivory fabric and put some nice black lace over it it’d be even better.”
