I had a lot of fun making this little eclectic light fixture! We thrifted this old dish rack a while ago, so I decided to repurpose it over the weekend and create this quirky DIY accordion light fixture!

What You’ll Need

  • A Light Cord
  • Old Dish Rack or Coat Rack


I simply took a light and cord we had hanging around and intertwined it with the dish rack. It was such an easy project and it adds a lot of personality to that space.

It’s super easy to move, so if I find another place more suitable it won’t be a big fuss and most importantly it has the ability to complement the rest of the home setup wherever it goes.

You can really play around with the height of the light since it easily folds. It’s nice and sturdy, so I’m not too worried about it tipping over! This could also look great with a wood dish rack or even coat rack if you want! Sometimes you just have to use what you’ve got at your disposal or simply repurpose with a little imagination and creativity!

 Lamp Fixture

I can never have enough light in our home. It was built in the 40s, so there is hardly any overhead lighting. That’s why I have a collection of different lamps which I like to turn on, depending on where I am. It sets a nice, cozy, and relaxing mood in the evenings! Plus, this makes my home an inviting place for me and the guests alike.
