Roundup: Uniquely Re-Purposed Lighting Fixtures

It's no surprise that etsy has become a top spot for all things creatively re-cycled. Outside the etsy bubble, the buzz-prefix, "re" — "re-claimed" and "re-purposed" — may equal expensive, but within the handmade haven, it often still means stylishly affordable. So naturally, on our quest for unique lighting options for our home, etsy was the first stop. Here's a sampling of our favorite re-purposed lights...

The tin can night light is one of the many creative lighting designs from Mariposa Avenue.

As a spray paint addict and a junketeer, I felt an instant connection with this handmade desk lamp from Breeze Block (bblock).

Recycled perfection! We love the curves and luminous aura of BoxingDay's pendant lamp made from recycled milk cartons.

We love the mod colors, Amy Butler fabric shade, and unique combination of materials that make this Birdwing Productions lamp a bright focal point.

Quirky and masculine. We love McGdesign's candle sticks made from copper pipe fixings.

I'm a fan neither of scotch nor cigars, but the elegant aura of this clubby styled table lamp from cecietcela sent me swooning.

A bit pricier than the others, but we had to include it for its ingenuity. Made from plastic store hangers, Organelle's Hangelier, radiates witty retail glam.
