I don’t like to see vinyl records go to waste for the sake of home decor, but if you’ve got a few LPs lying around that are beyond repair, then you might as well cover some naked bulbs with them like designer Sandman did with this handsome upcycled vinyl lamp shade.


Sandman has plenty of other upcycled projects on his website, including this cleverly simple lamp shade made from a coffee can.
