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’.
