Hi guys, This is an easy way to make your own lamp from an old (or new) chain

Step 1: Find Your Chain That You're Going to Use

In my case; my bike was stolen and so they cut my chain in half (sad sad me) But hey now i can make a cool lamp! any chain will do.

Step 2: Shape It

First start with the curve from the lamp. Put it in the shape you want and weld it together. After that make sure that you create a big enough circle that makes it stable.

Step 3: Over Kill

make sure that you weld more points at each chain so it can handle some more pressure

Step 4: Paint It and Assemble It

Now its getting difficult..... you have to choose which colors you are going to use :D not only for the paint but also for the wire and the bulb fitting.

good luck peeps!! greetings from the rainy Netherlands :D

Ouch. 0.0; My husband had his bike stolen in college once so he got a replacement and took the seat off (he just rode it standing up). He never lost that one, lol.
