Ikeahacker: Post-it Lamp

Aug 8, 2008

We've been ruminating about doing something different with the pendant lamps in our kitchen. Currently we have the hanging Ikea Melodi pendant lamps but the white lamps against the white walls have grown just a little too vanilla. So when we stumbled across this clever, fire-hazard-in-the-making lamp on Ikeahacker we were dubious yet intrigued…

This hacker dressed an old Ikea uplight with…post-it notes. He points out that you need to use a cool bulb like a fluorescent. And while we're skeptical that the lamp looks nearly as fun off as it does on or that you can really pull it off without looking like you just put post-it notes all over your lamp, it got us wondering about what else we could do to our Melodis to dress them up a bit.

Any ideas? Have you Ikea hacked any of their lamps?
