DIY Cross Stitch Lamp. You have to buy the lamp and it’s quite expensive, but couldn’t you do this yourself with cross stitch canvas, and a light kit? Found at Decor8 here. There is a whole site/community based around LampGustaf's lamps here, where you can create your own pattern, see tons of others uploaded by people, where to buy etc…
DIY Dry Erase Lamp. Glass, metal and other materials are great to use with dry erase markers. Like this idea of having something graphic and erasable/changeable when you get tired of it. Tutorial for shade and more infomation at The Creative Imperative here.
DIY Moroccan Inspired Hurricane Lanterns. Posted already on Tumblr, BUT THIS IS AN UPDATE about paint used, tips and links to Home Depot decorative aluminum sheeting. From Urban Comfort here. Oh, and one interesting note by the author about his tutorial in published in Family Circle here:
The only note I want to make - the magazine took a little creative license with photography. Use these hurricanes with votive candles housed in glass or with the candle on a small plate.
Yes, I’d say that last note is quite important. I am loving anything with those fake LED tea lights in them at this point.
