Who says that colanders are only for rinsing vegetable and spaghetti. Tom from Ikea Hackers has come up with a unique design to use colanders in his lighting decor.
After seeing them at Ikea he came home and removed the handles. A trip to the hardware store produced the lighting parts needed to turn them into lamps. He finished everything off by adding it to a piece of countertop and attaching it to the ceiling.
If you are not sure how to wire in your own lamp be sure to get some help from someone who is sure. This project would work well in an industrial and modern decor with its stainless design element. Tom really thought outside the box with his lamp project. Who knew that a colander would make a great chandelier. A clever hack using an Ikea colander.
