DIY lamp from a tree stump...

Hello Lovelies;)
Yesterday I showed you this photo.


I´ve made even more;)




And than it hits me...
Why not make a lamp from a tree stump?
I had this old inexpensive lamp fixture from IKEA.



Than came the tough part, to pick the perfect tree stump...
Finally I´ve found this one




I sanded them a little bit to get the rough parts nice and smooth and 
gave them a coat of clear paint.
Than drilled a hole through the whole stump and added the light fixture to them.


Here you can see the drilled hole.
Add a bulb and your lamp is ready;)



Sadly I don`t have the perfect lampshade yet.
But it looks kinda cool, so earthy and rough;)
I thought about one of these also from IKEA.




What do you think?

I think I made one more and than place them in my bedroom
on the nightstands;)

Do you like my new lamp?;)

  5. So creative! We have lots of wood leftover from our stock of fireplace wood and have been thinking of new ways to use it up. We are making a bench right now...but this lamp is super creative!

  11. Hi,

    short question: How did you manage to get the wood between the base of the lamp (this metal thingy) and the socket of the lamp? As far as I know they are hard wired and only the shaft has to be mounted on the base. Or dir you cut the cable and use a new switch?

    Cheers

  12. Yes, I did cut the cable but I didn``t use a new switch, I simply added the (don`t know how to call that,) bulb holder back to the stump and glued them on it, That`s it no big deal;)
