Vintage Industrial Style Lampshades

Lampshades are, generally, very boring. Lampshades are the home decorating equivalent of tireflaps on a car. If the lamp is designed properly, you don’t really even need them. That said, much like mudflaps, there’s room for some artistic expression when it comes to your lampshades. Etsy seller Patturn wants to help spice up your living room, which is why they reclaim vintage sheet music, instructions and industrial documents and turn them into lampshades. Each piece will be slightly different, but they’re definitely a better, much cooler looking, alternative to what you’d find at Target, Room & Board or IKEA.

In short, this is a key-shaped multi-tool built of stainless steel that has all of the tools you need for everyday repairs for everything from light switches to bicycles. Bit driver. Protractor. Metric and Imperial rulers. Imperial and Metric closed wrenches. Bottle Opener. File. Scoring tip. Wire bender and bike spoke key. Wire stripper. Screwdrivers. 1/4 hex driver pocket. So you might need to throw in some hex bits for specific projects, but otherwise, the Geekey has you covered for almost all of your everyday repair needs. As if that wasn’t enough, the hexogon can also serve as a smoking bowl, with the shaft of the key hollowed out to serve as a pipe.
