Our resident Eco Hero, Jules Haines of the Haines Collection (read all about Jules here) loves a quick easy up-cycled transformation.
Looking to brighten up her home desk and add a dash of contrasting interiors chic, Jules decided on using one of her recycled interiors fabrics to make these stunning matching empire shades and she didn't stop there!
Picking a classic wooden June table lamp base from our range of wooden table lamp bases, and using left over paint from a kitchen project, Jules made coordinating lamp bases for her shades to proudly sit on. One eco desk transformation complete!

Upcycled bottle lamp base and shade
We all know that getting creative for the men in your life is not easy. Once you've surpassed a BBQ apron and couple of pairs of novelty socks, it's really time to engage your making brain and we think that Jules may have resolved an age old problem with reuse - recycle twist.
On the approach to Father's Day, she came up with perfect way of re-purposing a special bottle using one of our Bottle lamp holder conversion kits. To make this personal you could use a memento as Jules has, or save his favourite spirit or wine bottle.
Paired with a beautiful velvet from Jules' fabric remnants website, the Haines Collection, to make a matching drum shade, Jules shows us in the video below how to make the ideal gift from that difficult to buy for man. Better still it uses what would normally end up in your recycling bin!
