#1 DEAR IKEA
Here’s “Dear Ikea” – Inspired by Ingo Mauers “Dear Ingo”. I wanted to make a cool, modern looking chandelier that didn’t have to be expensive. So I did. Out of IKEA TERTIAL lamps, a table leg and some black MDF plates. Read more.
#2 Ingo affordable
I’ve always loved the look of Dear Ingo chandelier but could never bear to spend that kind of money so I got creative and voilà! See more of the hack inspired by the Dear Ingo Chandelier.
Jason’s version consists of three TERTIAL work lamps, fixed upside down to the ceiling. He says, “The TERTIAL lamp is the simplest and cheapest and I already had one laying around. The room calls for a decorative lighting fixture, but there is no such thing as a cheap, beautiful, classy chandelier. My solution was to add a bit of irony, surprise and humor to the problem.” Read more.
#4 Hanging TERTIAL ceiling lamp
For my TERTIAL iPad holder hack, I cannibalized a TERTIAL, but had the lamp as a left-over. So I decided to create a hanging lamp with it. I wanted two lamps so I bought another TERTIAL. Read more.
#5 TERTIAL ceiling light remix
I needed something brighter to go over the desk in my office. My apartment came with a generic residential lamp that wasn’t quite fulfilling the light I needed to work.
So using about three Tertial Lamps from Ikea that I had found last year, I made a hanging lamp with four 40w bulbs that I can individually control with switches, that also plugs into the existing light fixture with an adapter I got at the dollar store, so I can turn the entire fixture on and off using the wall switch.
