Today's idea came in front of me by complete accident and has no doubt been all over the blog-o-sphere (so how did I not see it until now??). Its so adorable and such a low budget project, its definitely worth a share. It comes from HGTV via Dan Faires.
Using the the two cheapest things you can find at secondhand shops - old books and lamps - to create a little personality packed lighting fixture. Love it.
Anyone else do this or something like it? Let's see it.
Read all about how he did it over HGTV.
