Ideal Bite: Made in the Shade

Our friends over at Ideal Bite did a little write up on LiT and we love them for it. We loved the post, so we figured why not share it? Enjoy, and thanks Ideal Bite!

The Bite:
Living in the lap of luxury? Maybe not, but your lamp shade can at least look the part.
LiT (maker of couture lamp shades with paper backing - not plastic - and reclaimed fabric) has a tip for brightening up lackluster lamps you already own (rather than buying new): DIY silhouette shades. Just flip the switch and...voilĂ : grown-up shadow puppets. Success.

Great idea right? If you wanna try it, just stop on by-you know where we are.
