This is a terrific lamp that will surely compliment any room. This awesome lamp can change color with the aid of its remote control. Also the remote can adjust its brightness. The style can be customized with 3 different included designs or you can create your own design! Not only does it look great, but it also is easy to make.

Step 1: Supplies

To make this lamp you will need:

An 7in. by 7in. piece of 3/4 in. Plywood

A Plastic Lightbulb Socket

A Lamp Cord

Two 3/4 inch-long Wood Screws

A Drill

3/4 inch-diameter Drill Bit

A Glue Stick

5 Sheets of Colored Card Stock (any color)

4 Self-Adhesive Rubber Feet

Packing Tape

Scotch Tape (Matte Finish)

A Silhouette Portrait

Color Changing LED Lightbulb (with remote)

Five 7in by 7in square pieces of Acrylic Sheet (You may need to buy one big sheet and cut it up into 5 smaller ones)

Awesome! If I don't have/want to buy a Silhouette portrait just for this could I print it out on the paper then use an X-ACTO knife to cut it out? It would take a while but would be cheaper.
<p>Absolutely! Just remember that the size of each paper has to match the size of each side of the lamp. Using an X-ACTO knife will very likely be more tedious, but will still do the job. Good luck!</p>
<p>How do you connect the remote?? I'm Confused??? :?</p>
<p>Actually, you don&rsquo;t. When you buy a <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Lighting-EVER-Remote-Controlled-Changing/dp/B007V1VOI8/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1406485539&sr=8-3&keywords=remote+control+light+bulb" rel="nofollow">color changing LED lightbulb</a> it comes with its own wireless remote, already programmed and connected to the lightbulb.</p>
Ah, okay! Just noticed that! I mostly just skimmed the article at first....so...yeah! Thanks for the help!!
<p>Nice work but you should have used opaque acrylic instead of transparent.</p>
<p>Hey, that's a great idea! Thanks for sharing!</p>
That's such a cool idea!<br>5 Stars!
<p>Thank you!</p>
<p>Is it bigger on the inside? ;)</p><p>Very cool idea. I will have to give it a try sometime. Oh, and a vote, of course. </p>
<p>Thanks! I'm glad you liked it!</p>

Can you get the supplies at a Home Depot??
<p>I am pretty sure that you can get most of the supplies needed at your local Home Depot.</p>

<p>No problem, and thank you for the cool project :)</p>
<p>clean work.</p>
<p>This looks so cool! I'm thinking about making it, but I have to ask where did you get the lightbulb socket? Is there a special size or type or something? I've never worked with light bulbs or lamps before</p>
<p>Thanks citizen-of-wonderland! I got mine at Lowes. Here is a link to a standard lightbulb socket that you can get at Lowes: <a href="http://www.lowes.com/pd_71130-334-S1174W-SP-L_1z0yt4v+1z140rk__?productId=1098607&Ntt=light+socket&pl=1&currentURL=%3FNtt%3Dlight%2Bsocket%26page%3D1&facetInfo=Plastic" rel="nofollow">http://www.lowes.com/pd_71130-334-S1174W-SP-L_1z0y...</a></p>
hi how did you fix the acrylic sheets together permanetly after taping them..? thanks
<p>The tape I used was strong enough to hold it together permanently. It does not require anything else.</p>
goldlego, awesome tutorial and great job on the photography! How did you make your supplies list picture? If you could PM me back, that would be great.<br><br>Thanks for sharing,<br>-KTC
AWSOME!!! Where did you get the acrylic sheets
<p>Thanks! I purchased 1 big DURAPLEX Acrylic Sheet from Lowe's and then used a table saw to cut it into 5 smaller pieces, each 7-in by 7-in. I am sure you can find one at your local hardware store.</p><p>Here is the link to the one I purchased: <a href="http://www.lowes.com/pd_78750-1638-1X08123A_0__?productId=3143519" rel="nofollow">http://www.lowes.com/pd_78750-1638-1X08123A_0__?pr...</a></p>
That's an awesome idea!!!
<p>Thanks! I'm glad you liked it.</p>
<p>I like your fandoms :) And I like that you only need one lamp to show them all off!</p>
