Hi! My name is Lola and I’d like to show you my little IKEA hack. I call it the KRUSNING flower. I used the HEMMA table lamp base and KRUSNING pendant lamp shade (the smaller size).
The KRUSNING is sold as a “cloud” lamp shade. You are supposed to be able to create your own unique design by crumbling the paper layers into different shapes. The layers of paper can create a soft, cosy atmosphere and spread a diffused and decorative light.
The KRUSNING is lovely as it is but I decided to turn it up side down and give it the appearance of flower.
I alternated the layers and closed them gradually from the inside to the outside, bending a little bit the corners of the last ones so it looks like an open flower.
The hole from the lamp shade is bigger than the lamp base so I used a connector that came with other lamp shade I bought and used it to fix the difference of size between the KRUSNING shade and the base.
