How many of us have an old floor lamp we would like to discard, but hang on to because we need it for the extra light it provides? With a few soda bottles and duct tape (yep, not a misprint) you can transform that dull lamp into the gorgeous one pictured above. Check out the tutorial at Matsutake.
I thought this Joy Pallet Sign was a creative way to use leftover wrapping paper; however, for a more modern look the letters could be placed on the wall. You could also paint the wood or use a different type of wood and stain it. If your letters were not too large, and you wanted to hang this in the kitchen, you could mount them on a colored cutting board. Head over to Hometalk for the instructions.

Check out these concrete pendant lamps you can make at home! I have to admit these look pretty slick and would look nice above that breakfast bar. The folks at Homemade-Modern bring you this great DIY.
I have seen these hemp pendant lamps in stores, but considering that I wanted three the price became too expensive. So, I started searching the internet for a tutorial because I knew they could be made cheaper than I could purchase. When I found this tutorial, my problem was solved. The natural color of hemp blends with my decor; however, you could use white or colored string. As for the bouncy ball, you could use any size balloon on up to those large punching balls. Use your imagination and have fun with it!
