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
Two 3/4 inch-long Wood Screws
3/4 inch-diameter Drill Bit
5 Sheets of Colored Card Stock (any color)
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)
Step 2: Making the Lamp Base
Start off by using the drill and drill bit to make a hole that goes directly through the center of your plywood. Next, attach one self-adhesive rubber foot to each of the four corners of the plywood. This will raise it up just enough for the wire to fit under the bottom. Now take the lamp cord and pull the open end (the end that doesn't go into an outlet) up through the hole in the plywood. The rubber feet should be on the bottom and the wire should coming out through the top. Next, attach the wire to the lightbulb socket and screw the socket to the plywood (see photos). Don't forget to screw in the lightbulb!
