Halogen spot lights at the wall were pre-installed in our flat when we moved in. We looked around the internet for nice wall lamps but only found ones that looked rather boring or were too expensive. After a trip to Ikea the past weekend, we decided to try if we could use the lamp shade of a normal pendant lamp to use it as a shade for the wall lamps.
It is pretty simple: we cut the lamp shape into two with a cardboard cutter and fixed it on the wall with pins. We didn’t use the metal frame that came with the lamp.
