Plant Light

I decided my naked light bulbs needed some sprucing up and made a cute cover for one of my plant lights.

This little lamp shade was picked up from a charity shop and looked pretty horrible before I removed the weird fake rawhide cover. After picking off the massive amount of glue I decided to wrap the frame with some washi tape.

It was a super easy project, but there was a minor mishap when hanging up the light:


As I was putting the cord up in the hook I dropped it, the light bulb made a direct hit with the edge of the orchid planter. The orchid may be getting replanted because I'm afraid I didn't get all the glass out and I don't want to accidentally cut myself weeks or months in the future. Somehow it also chopped off a leaf from a pothos.

    1. It's pathetic looking, but the new little leaf is doing really well.
