Easy No-Wire Wall Lights

If you're anything like me, then chasing simple and affordable lighting solutions is probably something you spend way too much time doing (I think some of my past lighting posts can attest to that). But I'm not just talking about inexpensive DIY plug-in fixtures...

Table Lamp to Wall Light Hack | Super Easy DIY

I realise this basic project is far from rocket-science, however a few of you expressed interest in learning more about it after I shared a brief overview in the bungalow bedroom reveal post from last week. So, I thought it would be nice to put together a little...

How to Turn a Basket into a Light Shade

How to Turn a Basket into a Light Shade

When I first saw this basket in a Spotlight store I knew it was supposed to be a light fitting. And making that happen was surprisingly quick and easy! The first thing I did was remove the heavy timber base. It was just attached with four screws so that was pretty...

Convert a Music Tripod into a Lamp

Don't get me wrong, I love the fact I get to call Australia home, though a word of warning to anyone thinking of moving here (particularly if you're a home DIY-aholic accustomed to a seemingly endless array of affordable and easily attainable supplies). Sure, we might...

DIY Repurposed Basket Ceiling Light

DIY Repurposed Basket Ceiling Light

I know repurposed light shades aren't exactly a new idea though I did kinda just make this one up as I went along. I really wanted a hanging pendant in the nursery though the ceiling is just too low so I instead opted to transform a standard batten fix (flush mount)...

  Question: What do you get when you take.... one kinda very ugly old light fixture, a can of black spray paint, some blingy old necklaces you wore once to a wedding three years ago, and an el-cheapo drum shade from Target? Answer: A pretty awesome 'new'...
