Instructables

Hello everyone!

I had this desk lamp on my desk in the past days but while trying to adjust its height, I accidentally broke it. Maybe I'm too rough or it's too weak. Anyway, it was standing in my scraps and I decided to use it in someway.

I like reading books but I hate those book lamps that you put on your page. I thought that a lamp on my bed would be awesome to read books at night before I sleep. Actually I have been wanting a lamp like this for a long time and now I have it.

For this project you need:

  • A broken lamp like mine
  • A screwdriver
  • Electric drill
  • Two screw anchors
  • Two screws to put in the screw anchors
  • Electric terminal (you don't need this if your cable is not damaged)
  • Electrical tape (you don't need this if your cable is not damaged)
  • Wall hanger (I don't know the actual name. It's something to put the lamp on the wall.)
  • Cable cutter (you don't need this if your cable is not damaged)

Let's start!

Step 1: Disassembling the unnecessary pieces

I started disassembling the unnecessary pieces from the bottom. When I unscrewed the bottom screws, I saw a weight that is full of sand in it. It is to make the lamp stay on the ground. TRASH!

In the middle, I disassembled the screws to adjust the height. My lamp is broken because of those screws!!!

After that, I broke the cable ducts to free the cable. It was a little bit difficult but if you be tough, you can make it :)
