DIY straw lamp shade: repurposing gone too far?

November 20, 2009 |  8:06 am


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.
