After a day of problems with the hosting company, I’m finally able to use and see my blog again. So happy to be back in business and back to what I wanted to show you yesterday. It’s time again to share another upcycle project I’ve made. Last week I showed the MilkFlower lampshade made of parts I cut out of plastic milk cartons.

Plastic milk cartons turned into shell shaped lampshade

And today I present the ‘MilkShell‘, made out of leftovers from producing the MilkFlower lamshade. After cutting up all these cartons I ended up with a top part, a middle part and the bottom. This time I wanted to use the top part, but in such a way that you wouldn’t recognize the milk carton right away. And looking at the first reactions I think I succeeded in doing so.

The MilkShell is a playfull shape with a protective character because of the inward direction in which it points. The best thing of this lampshade is the fantastic shadow it shows on the walls. It’s always a big surprise how the design turns out but it is even a bigger surprise how the light and the shadow will turn out. And I must say I’m pleased with the result. Like I said the last time, stay tuned for more upcycle design made by me. Please take a look at the other photo’s at ‘See more photos’.

  1. Just great. I’m trying to get ideas for a downsize house we hope to build and just looking at ideas for lighting. It is fabulous. I have seen them use the milk jugs at Christmas in Birmingham, AL. But this is so creative and beautiful. Thank you for being so creative.

    • Thank you. I loved the shape of this lampshade, but when I turned on the light I was stunned by the shadows. Whenever you turn the lamp the shadows change into another great flowery shape.
