My husband Louis helped me to make these awesome bedside lamps. I could not find any nice suitable bedside lamps anywhere so we decided to make our own using decorative vases.
I bought the silver vases from Mr. Price.
Materials needed to build lamp:
– Decorative Vase
– Lamp holder
– Electric cord with on/off switch
– 2 x nuts and bolts to mount lamp holder
Step 1: Drill holes on the bottom of the vase/lamp to mount the lamp holder/socket.
Step 2: Drill hole on the side for electric cord to exit.
Step 3: Connect electrical wire to lamp socket.
Step 4: Place lamp right side up and place lamp holder inside the lamp and fasten lamp holder with nuts and bolts.
Step 5: Insert globe into lamp holder.
Step 6: Wire cord up to 15 amp plug.
Step 7: Plug into wall socket.
Step 8: Switch on lamp!!
