My brother in law presented me two cabinets which look perfect at either side of our living room couch. But as soon I placed them, I realized that there was a problem! They screamed for lamps, each of them and I was in no mood to spend 50$.
A little R&D told me that I could recycle old glass bottles into lamp-shades and they look absolutely chic and stunning! Well, well, I thought why not!
I cleaned a glass bottle (obviously, as you can see, “Black Dog” whiskey), drilled a hole at its base (very, very tricky, keep a steady force of water while you are at it and wear safety gears), attached one piece of wire to a holder, took the other out through the base-hole and attached it to a plug-in. The crucial half ends here.
I have used a transparent wire, you can use any wire that goes with your glass bottle.
Next, I attached the holder on the neck by means of a strong glue that can be used in electrical purposes and fit the shade. That’s it! An old Whiskey bottle was radically recycled into a lampshade with cost under 8$.
The result: See for yourself!
Tip: While attaching scratch the holder from below by the help of a knife. Rough surfaces ensure better and strong hold when glued than smooth, polished ones.
Hope you’ve had a great weekend everyone!
