Fascinated by the idea of giving second life to old and useless things, Netherlands-based graphic designer and DIYer Gilbert de Rooij has been making and sharing upcycling ideas on his blog since 2013. One of his fascinating projects is the golf clubs lamp. As the name suggests, the lamp is made from upcycled golf clubs.
Dubbed Loft&Light 57, this upcycled floor lamp comprises MDF floor stand, wood, iron, and a Nesquik chocolate powder container. There is an adjustable yellow lampshade to offer warm light.
Inspired by his childhood memories, Gilbert came up with the idea of interlocking the golf clubs with a metal swivel so that one golf club stays free, allowing it to be used to adjust the lampshade easily.
He has creatively upcycled an old unused set of old golf clubs into a functional floor-standing lamp that mimics a mic stand. It is a clever DIY project that any golf fan or not can try and have it standing next to the bed or sofa to light up an evening.
