Are you one of those people who likes to put everything in their house to good use? Then this is for you. If you have old x-rays gathering dust in the closet, get them out and convert them into beautiful lamp shades! This is what three design students in Sweden have done.

Product design students Elin Hedlund, Emmelie Karlström and Sture Pallarp of Stockholm’s Beckmans College of Design came up with this clever idea, which provides a new life for old x-rays. What better way to illustrate (and illuminate) that story of your fall from a horse when you were six years old than with the x-ray showing the fracture?
