The other night I whipped up a little forest glam DIY for my run-of-the-mill IKEA spotlight lamp. This project ticks all the boxes for me...recycled, repurposed, AND upcyled!


Recycled:  antique crystal chandelier parts

Repurposed: Twigs and chandy parts become part of lamp design

Upcycled:  a boring lamp gets a splash of forest glam

Yes, that is the Harry Lauder Walking Stick bush - I think translated from Swedish it's something like "Contorted Hazelnut".
I, too, love the contrast between the steel, sticks, and crystal glass. I'm already trying to figure out how to expand on the idea. Certainly something for the holidays is a must.
