weekday carnival diy geometric shade

by Grace Bonney

Earlier this spring Kate, Amy and I had grand plans to build our own Himmeli-inspired copper-pipe lighting, but they fell by the wayside when we had to finish up the summer newspaper. I’m glad we did the newspaper (stay tuned for details soon!), but every time I see great DIY pipe or wire lamps, I get jealous. This gorgeous version from Weekday Carnival nails the minimal geometric look. If you’ve got some leftover wire or pipe hanging around your house, may I suggest this as your “while watching TV” activity tonight? I want to fill my entire ceiling with these. Click here to read the full post and more about the project. xo, grace
