Lampshade Phonebook: A Creative Way to Reuse Your Old Yellow Pages

Phonebooks are thick in these parts, with many pages full of names, addresses, Yellow Pages and much more. They are also updated annually, which means phonebooks tend to build up after a few years.
altSo, what do we do with all those old pages? Sure, we can recycle our phonebooks, which is highly recommended. But for those that are a bit more craft inclined there are other ways to repurpose your old phonebook.


We recently stumbled upon The Swell Life, a blog by Alexa Westerfield, where she documents how she turned her telephone book into a lampshade. That’s right, in nine easy steps she created a lampshade that would make virtually any room shine!


So light up the New Year, and visit The Swell Life to learn more.
