Anno Inez

Custom lamp from 2 Ikea items

Materials: Old Ikea Lamp, Ikea Anno Inez curtain panel

Description: I had an old, discontinued Ikea floor lamp with a paper shade (predecessor to the DUDERO). The paper became shabby and torn after a few years with kids, so I decided to create a new lampshade.

First, I cut off as much paper as possible from the metal rings that held the shade, then soaked the rest off with water.

I took one Anno Inez curtain panel and cut the length of the panel into four equal pieces. I layered 2 pieces on top, an 2 pieces on the bottom, and sewed them together in the middle. Then I sewed a long tube to fit the metal rings that used to hold the paper shade.

I mounted the fabric tube on the top ring with pins, and then hand-sewed it on. Repeat with the bottom ring.

The layered fabric looks very pretty when the light is on.

  1. It’s very nice. Kind of reminds me of a Kimono. Elegant and minimalistic.

    Main concern with this hack is fire risk. The original shade material was tested for fire hazard caused by heat from bulbs. The curtain material was not tested.
