New lighting by 

Use of your old kitchen utensils and serving pieces.

1. Old Cheese Graters

Old cheese graters work phantasticly. They are also one of the simplest ways to get started. 

Hang them on a board for a great home made chandelier.

2. Vintage or colorful colanders.

Old colanders work very well too. 

They can cast great light patterns on your ceilings and walls. 

If you have a bunch make a large chandelier.

Or a great wall mounted display. 

3. Combine Colanders and Cheese Graters

Combine the first two ideas and use a colander and a cheese grater.

This one even adds a round baking pan as the base. 

4. Tea Pots and Vintage Coffee Percolators

Keeping the colander shade going on this really cool percolator lamp. 00057661

These old percolators work great because some of them already have the wiring partially set up. 

Just find  the right shade and you are all set.

Now create your own and send us the photos and we publish
Your piece.
