I have been known to hoard a container or two (or a hundred) because they offer a plethora of repurposing possibilities. I was pretty wowed when I came across this Pottery Barn inspired lamp on Instructables that was made from none other than a recycled oatmeal container. All dressed up with a geometric pattern and metallic spray paint, you would never guess looking at this lamp that it was made from mere cardboard!
The original inspiration came from Pottery Barn’s Etched Mercury Glass Lamp.
From the instructions to make your own at Instructables.
