Yard Sale Junk Turned Into Amazing House Lamps For Your Home?

Some great, on-the-cheap, lighting ideas here- all in one photo I saw over on www.pinterest.com and on houzz.com. Its on quite a few pages at this point, and rightfully so. File under: Simple and affordable ways to add clever and unique touches to your home.

I've made wine bottle lights in the past, but never tea cup lights- so cool!

Plastic salad and punch bowls, even old-style tupperware could also work well.

Don't write off "wooden light hoods" either. It sounds crude, but even a simple painted, hanging, "box" with a few variously-sized holes drilled it in, makes for a fun, effective, and unique looking ceiling light.

Here's another great lamp from Design Squish

  1. A few years back I picked up some cheap colanders one giant and one smaller. I cut a hole in the bottom middle of each one and screwed in a light fixture. One was suspended in my kitchen over the dining table the other over the sink. the shiny stainless steel made a great reflector while the holes cast awesome light around the room.

    Christmas tree shops has "globe" candle lanterns on sale for cheap right now. really neat in a bunch of colors and sizes.
