Lighting change ups!
Materials: All Ikea parts changed to make more interesting
Description: Red Vases from the Valentines section I turned upside down and glued to the base of the plastic Ikea Lampan in red. These can’t come apart so use new bulbs as they have to last until the bulb burns. LOVED them hung them over my tub.
On the chandelier that was mine, I used the Ikea colourful glass bits for their chandeliers and put the candle drip holders under the bulb. Loved the effect! I had four matching chandeliers in my show room and this colourful version was my happiest!
On the Basisk lamp I cut holes in the shade and glued on doodles of wire and beads so the light came through on them.
On another Basisk lamp, I removed the shade and made my own out of wire and large aqua beads rough nuggets. Love it!
ANd on the Ikea tin chandelier – not sure if they have them still now, I removed all of their beads and hand wired aqua beads. It a cherished piece.
