Steal this Idea*: Ghost Light Fixtures

Its Friday (yippee!) - time for another Steal this Idea* feature - a tiny show of appreciation for a well executed tutorial.

Today's spotlight is on Life in the Fun Lane which just so happens to be loaded with great ideas. For whatever reason I missed this goodie back when she first shared it more than 6 months ago. Its the kind of idea that just makes me wonder 'now why didn't I think of that?'. Simple, practical, impactful and cheap - all around clever.

Take one look at this...

Who hasn't run across a tired old lampshade that could use a new home? This idea could be used in a ton of ways - imagine a series of them in different shapes and sizes adorning a round entryway or how about strings of them in a barn? Details on how she did it can be found over at Life in the Fun Lane. Go check it out!

*When I say steal, I really mean borrow nicely and give proper credit!
**If you have an idea/tutorial you would like me to consider for a feature, email me. I'd love to see!


  1. This is a great idea. I like that the burlap covers up the wiring.

  2. I just did this with some old shade frames I found in my grandparents attic on some vintage jar lamps. Love the look. I haven't posted any photos yet but when I do I'll let you know. Happy Friday!

    Awww thanks so much for sharing!!! Made my day Mrs.Limestone! (ps-your awesome hair on the Nate Show recently totally influenced my desire to cut mine this week)
    TGIF and hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Really gorgeous idea! I saw something like this at Anthropologie yesterday, but it wasn't quite as pretty. I guess it just goes to show how many different styles you can get out of something like this : )
