I've noticed more and more that people get rid of doilies either by thrifting them, giving them away for free, or throwing them out. Here's a creative and unique looking idea for a light shade using doilies.
PIN SEVEN: Concrete light, used as a unique industrial design. I imagine this light to be found in warehouse used as a design studio/business. The cracking in the concrete allows the netting material behind to be visible and adds texture to the light.
