In these micro-woven take-away times, the silent witnesses of the home-made, by-gone era often end up in masses in thrift shops and at the salvage yard…
Old brioche tins, pie dishes and enamel colanders are easy to find…and easy to re-make.
Let these great examples from fab scrap hacking Etsy vendor Flea Market Rx (by maker Hilary Nagler and photographer Robert Redfield) inspire some home-made lamp cooking…
The lovely photos are all from the Flea Market Rx shop (and by photographer Robert Redfield). Check out the Etsy shop for loads of more inspiration!
Hilary works with whatever medium inspires that day – reimagining antique lamp parts into modern rustic fixtures, reclaimed plumbing pipe and wood planks become elegant dining tables. Wood, steel, tile, paint … kitchen sink alchemy and patinas that make the heart sing.
Inspiration from colorful textile cords are also a great way to get started on your lamp D.I.Y-projects, these pretty examples were seen @ Alibaba store Unirise Electronics but i´m sure you can source your own local solution.
