What a BONUS of a light!!

Materials: BONUS Cutlery, DOKUMENT Paperbasket, Kitchenstuff

Description: This is hack number 3 with all the items left over from the first two hacks BONUS cutlery. Maybe you remember number one and number two. The residues from cutlery BONUS I’ve added with small cookie cutters and kitchen utensils and a lamp socket scrued in the paper basket DOKUMENT.

Hung up all the items with the little hooks for hanging curtains DIGNITET. Then you need just to drill a few holes in the parts. This is in the other hacks already described and shown. And you’re done. Great lamp for the dining table, less than 10 euro per piece and of curse a unique peace of art. Also: Good storage for cookie shapes that are actually needed just for X-mas! LOL

    I think it serves its purpose well. Similar to having exposed pot racks. And if you ever forget what room you’re in you’ll have lots of visual cues. ha.

  2. It definitely has a steam punk feel into it, I like it a lot. Thank you very much.

    LOVE ikeahacker and to me there are three kinds of projects.

    First are the design-driven and use the good (and sometimes great) raw materials that only ikea can produce. These are true and worthy hacks that are inspired and elevate and magically transform what’s already there like alchemy.

    The second are the clever combined uses and re-configuration of products to suit a particular need and/or space. These about tailoring something to make it more than what it is.

    Then there are the craft projects…

    I think it’s very creative with the idea to change the decorations on it as the season changes or the holiday or just for fun!!! :-)

    I can not please everybody and I think that is not the question over here.

    I’m all for creative expression, but this hurts my eyes.

    Wow, that’s the worst light fixture I’ve ever seen.

    Normally love what you guys post but, this time, that’s a bust :)

    Love your site though.Keep up the good work.

    Sure you don’t have to like it. It looks in real much better than the pictures and it is for a holiday-appartement, matching the kitchen hanger with forks and the spoons in the second hack. All in one room. I like the idea with the mirrors and jewelry and perhaps I add some cristals I still hace. It is posible to re-decorate it every month and season, if you like. Eastereggs, leaves, flowers, whatever! Everybody is invited to develop great ideas for this kind of project.

    cool and useful. Need a spoon? – unhook it from the lamp above you!

    I like it :) I too have many cookie cutters used only at Christmas time

    You know what? I like the idea very much. To each their own; you put your personal stamp on it and went with left over cutlery – that’s what a hack is all about. I’m inspired to emulate your idea and replace the cutlery with either small mirrors or gaudy costume jewelry. Thanks for the idea!

    not the most appealing hack, however, i do like the table a lot, that’s pretty nice

  13. Kelly says:

    I agree with the last comment. If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

    lots of negativity. You know what, get off your ass and show me something better, of your own creation. personally, not my taste, but i give you props for not spending the hour of creation sitting on your butt watching tv.

    A waste of perfectly useful baking molds, utensils, and waste-baskets.
