There is no question that Donna of Funky Junk Interiors lives up to her blog’s name. She has an amazing knack for taking legitimate junk and making it funky and fun and just plain awesome! With the help of an artist/welding friend, Donna created this crazy cool, functioning lamp out of a collection of metal odds and ends. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a lamp with more character. Donna says it’s perfect for her “junk inspired home!”
I can’t help but get excited when I come across a knock-off that’s totally unique and fun, and this lamp from Jessica at Mad In Crafts is all that and more! Jessica designed her “steampunk-style, industrial accent lamp” using a secondhand bell jar from Goodwill and metal odds and ends from her local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. She spent only $20 on materials, which is a far cry from the $1298 price tag of her inspiration!
Janel from Nellie Bellie really blew me away with this unique lamp she created from pipes, wood spindles, and, of course, time and patience. Not only does it look amazingly like the inspiration, but the price difference is quite astounding ($86 versus $2,800). You can barely buy a lamp and shade from Target for the cost of Janel’s eye-catcher. Talk about making a statement!
If you love a little whimsy, then this teapot lamp from Mandi at Vintage Revivals is going to rock your world! Not only is it fun and totally unique but provides a great way to showcase dishes and knickknacks. Mandi’s brilliant design is also completely interchangeable so special pieces can easily be changed out for the seasons.
