Project Two…when we moved I had a coat stand which there was no place for in our new house so I decided to make it into a lamp for the lounge.
2 x Pendant lampshade
4m Electrical flex
Lamp holder (for bulb)
I bought two lampshades like below
and took one and attached the smaller section from the other to it, to make a tiered lampshade (see finished product).
Next I unscrewed the top hooks and turned them upside down then reattached them, this way the lampshade would sit on top of the stand.
Then, I fed the electrical flex through the centre of the stand and once I could work on the ends, I wired on the plug to the bottom of the wire and the bulb attachment to the top. I pulled the wire through so the bulb attachment sat flush in the top of the stand.
Next I used some metal wire to make a holder for the lampshade, once fixed in place the coat stand lamp was complete!
