What can you do with Old Lamps?

Renovating your home and changing its design is a load of work, especially when it comes to dealing with your old furniture. One of the most difficult things to work with is old light fixtures like lampshades. You really don’t know what to do with these since they’re not multi-tasking items to begin with. They just light up the room and when time comes that you want to get rid of them, you get stuck.


Here are a few ideas about what you can do with your old light fixtures.


Recycle them


Who says that you can reuse your old lamps? Be creative and use them for something else. Turn your lampshade stand into a decorative post, use the cover to make a basket, use your imagination to make your old light fixture into something different. Think outside the box and don’t look at it as just a lightshade. Go online and get inspired by recycling ideas people post in forums or social networking groups.


Revamp them


Instead of buying a new set of lights, refurbish them and make a new piece. Turn a set of table lamps into a new chandelier or over-head lamp. Place a stand underneath one to turn it into one of those corner lamps. Paint the shade to match your new decor and save on new lights. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to give a room a new look, so use what you have. You can also replace the bulbs with LED light bulbs so they can be power and eco-friendly.


Give them out or sell them


If you really want to get rid of them, you can ether give them to your friends and family or you can make some money and sell them. Just remember to change the bulbs with new LED light bulbs and clean them up so they’ll look like new.
