DIY Bare Bulb Lamps

Admittedly, there is no real project to this project, but that doesn’t lessen it’s impact. And we love easy, right? Simple lamps make a utilitarian, industrial statement with an assortment of unexpected bare lightbulbs. Why not ditch the shades?

TOOLS & MATERIALS: assorted lamps, lightbulbs

INSTRUCTIONS: Step 1: Collect lamps or lamp bases in different sizes, types and heights. Be mindful of sockets, as they will be visible. We chose dark lamps with black sockets for this reason. Step 2: Find lightbulbs that match acceptable wattage for lamps. Step 3: Screw in lightbulb, plug in and enjoy! Important: Be sure the bulb you choose matches the wattage on the lamp base.
