Lampshade from recycled photo slides

I have been seeing some great ideas for recycling things from the past. I have been working on changing all my grandfather’s old slides into digital photos but have been trying to figure out what to do with the slides when I am finished. I really hate to throw anything old away and I have found some projects that interest me for what to do with these when you no longer need them for photos.

Lamp Shade made to order from Vintage 35mm Slides - US Travel

This particular one came from  an etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/listing/93555162/lamp-shade-made-to-order-from-vintage) as did this one below. I think the lamp itself makes this one fabulous.  (http://www.etsy.com/listing/92477169/new-table-lamp-with-vintage-slide?ref=&sref=)

neat idea

or this from http://recycledcrafts.craftgossip.com/recycle-family-slides-into-a-modern-lamp-shade/2009/07/15/

This one is interesting as it was made as a hanging pendant-style lamp. They have the innards for this at Lowes for just a few dollars. http://www.frugalbits.com/columns/d-i-y/make-a-conversation-starting-pendant-lamp-shade-using-35mm-slides/

    That is just so cool! We used to have loads of old slides that were thrown out when I was a kid. I wish we’d kept them. I’ll be keeping an eye-out at the bootsales from now on.
