Materials: 3 Skurar plant pots, old lamp, power drill
Description: One day coming home I spotted a lamp next to garbage containers. I saw potential in it so I brought it home to see if it actually functioned. It did, so I started thinking what to do with it.
The glass shades were broken and ugly so I needed to find something else to replace them.
I came across Skurar white metal flowerpots in Ikea and I realized that they’d make excellent shades for the lamp if turned upside down. They have a pretty lace pattern in them.
I drilled holes sized to match the lamp and attached them to the lamp.
