We love a good upcycle project here at BigDIYIdeas! With beautiful, vintage and ornate designs on so much of the older silverware, you can take advantage and create something unique and lovely. Perhaps you inherited a family set that doesn’t serve a lot of use in your more modern home. That doesn’t mean you can’t make something new and beautiful to keep the item close. You can also thrift for silverware in order to create something beautiful, funky, or fun for your home!
You know that we have a thing for DIY lampshades… but this is too cute! Add some fun lighting by allowing the light to shine off of this silverware lampshade!
