One of my favorite FAVORITE things to do is go antique shopping…well, mostly window shopping. I find so much inspiration when I’m out and about. It’s trash to treasure at its finest! Last weekend, my best friend and I went to the Orange Circle and perused all the antique shops. I found a lot of great ideas for home décor and DIY projects. To narrow it down, I thought I’d put together a post of upcycling and repurposing ideas for lighting.
Let’s start with some upcycling ideas. These weren’t necessarily repurposed, but rather upcycled chandeliers that were embellished with crystals. The crystals transform these old pieces into chic and stylish.
I’ve always wanted to do this, and hopefully I will soon. These are beautiful chandeliers in cages. I saw so many cages that would work perfectly.
Probably my two favorites, these were made from bicycle wheels. I love the mixture of masculine and feminine design.
I also found a few repurposed desk lamps and floor lamps.
This one is great for an outdoor patio. It is string lights with bed springs attached to them for rustic chic outdoor lighting.
This unique orb pendant lamp is made from rusty saw blades.
Here are a few repurposing ideas with an industrial look.
This one is made from table legs!
This window shopping trip was so fun. I took A LOT more pictures, which I’ll share soon!
This weekend, I’m hoping to attend the Long Beach Antique Swap Meet. It’s been a while since I have gone. I’m sure I’ll find a lot of great ideas there. Can’t wait to show you!
