DIY straw lamp shade: repurposing gone too far?
When I stumbled upon this do-it-yourself pendant lamp made up of 1,500 drinking straws at Addicted 2 Decorating, I had conflicting first impressions. First: This takes repurposing much too far. Second: This is awesome.
Someone also made a version with translucent straws, which you can see here.
