Who knew trash could look this good? Gorgeous hanging lamps made from used printer ink cartridges make us wonder what kind of creative genius could come up with this—they're from an Etsy seller!

Four ink cartridges are dis- and reassembled to create these kickin' lamps. They're held back together around a light bulb with an aluminum bar, giving off a soft white glow.

The best part? (For us at least...) You can custom-pick your own cartridge colors! Choose four from these standard printer colors—Cyan, Light Cyan, Magenta, Light Magenta, Light Gray, Light Light Gray, and Matte Black—to make an any-combination custom light fixture with tons of geek cred.

The lamp in the pictures is made from the 220mL Ink Cartridges and is $45, but the Etsy seller, boxlightbox, sells versions from the longer 440mL cartridges. Grab them here.

Or, grab a one-cartridge desktop lamp for $30.
