DIY Lamps

DIY Lamps

Lamps that add more than just good lighting to a room.

You need:

1. IKEA FRÄCK mirror, with the mirror part thrown away (it just screws on and off of that threaded part at the top)

2. Lamp socket, the kind with a hole on the side for the cord to escape.
3. Adapter Nut
4. Plug
5. Wire. Any lamp wire will work, but since I generally have a phobia of exposed wires and this is, by definition, exposed, I ordered some cute twisted red cloth wire from Sundial Wire. It’s only $1.40 per foot, the shipping was really fast, it’s cute and really nice quality. I’m tempted to order the 250-foot spool, you know, just because. I’ll use it eventually.
6. Tools: flathead screwdriver, wire strippers.

I’m loving this idea of using toys, or any sort of knick knacks and hot gluing to a lamp base. Then you can cover the lamp base with several coats of paint and one coat of polyurethane lacquer. Pretty neat right?!
