This blog hop series makes me happy. It showcases bloggers that recycle, reuse and re-imagine things that they have in their own home into something pretty and useful again – I’m excited to show you what I came up with for this challenge!
It all starts with these flush mount fixtures that we have everywhere in our home:
While they’re not your typical “boob” light, they’re pretty plain jane so I’ve been slowly replacing them all. What I’m left with are these light fixture shades:
Looking at their shape, an idea came to mind – want to see what I did?!
Ta-da! I turned it into a vase!
The light shade is made of glass and it had a milk glass look to it so while I thought I should spray paint it or change up the appearance somehow, it looked lovely as is!
Isn’t it sweet? There is really no tutorial required for this – you basically take down the fixture, wipe it down (in my case because of the dust!) and then insert your plants or flowers – easy peasy! And pretty darn cute for what would otherwise have been considered garbage!
Thank you to the awesome Sarah from “Flourish and Knot” for hosting this series! Be sure to check out all the other bloggers and see what they did – your inspiration will overflow, believe me!
