From the blogger: "With this DIY project you can turn something rather plain into a really interesting statement piece with just one small subtle change. In this case by adding a map. I made this with an IKEA lampshade as it comes flat pack making this DIY really easy but you can use any flat pack lampshade kit. You can use maps of your favorite holiday destinations or places that are important to you. Whatever you do it will definitely make your ceiling lamps more interesting when you look up."
