Shining a New Light on Old Things â€“ Upcycled Lighting Fixtures
The trend of upcycling has been bestowed upon us to keep up our good intentions. The concept is relatively simple â€“ take what you have and make it into something you want.
Lighting is just one way we can upcycle in our home. Just make sure you utilize an energy-efficient light source like a CFL (compact fluorescent lamp) or LED (light emitting diode). Your energy costs will be lower as will your impact on the environment. Plus, the longer lifespan of the light means you wonâ€™t need to replace the bulb anytime soon.
The design is probably already lying around your house, just waiting for your imagination to bring it to new life.
This River Rain Mason Jar Chandelier is only one example of how wonderful recycling can be. Â You can find more ideas atÂ http://www.upcyclemagazine.com/. Â
