Fresh design doesn't always come in a pristine package, and these Can Lights by Sarah Pease prove it. Once vessels for holding and warming your staple dairy drink, these aluminum tins have been appropriated as chic illuminators.

The designer installs light fixtures below the lids of the metal kettles with electrical cords escaping through their tops. She cuts the bases off of the tall pots, essentially turning them into opaque lampshades.

The resultant creations perform well as spotlights and can be easily hung on nails and hooks from their handles to function as wall lamps. The Can Lights by Sarah Pease have a charming well-worn look about them that would complement rustic decor and bring character to modern interiors.
