Introduction: Driftwood Lamp

This is just a simple rustic lamp I made out of driftwood, an old pallet, and a yard sale lamp.

Step 1: Select Your Upright.

I found a piece of sassafras that had been weathered nicely by the wind and water. I drilled a 3/8" hole down through pretty much the center.

Step 2: Add the Hardware

You can by lamp kits from your local hardware store, but I'm cheap. The "guts" of my lamp were salvaged from a lamp I bought at a yard sale. I purchased two for a dollar knowing they would be repurposed eventually. I didn't take photos of the base but it is just repurposed pallet wood.

Step 3: Shed a Little Light.

Find a lamp shade you like and enjoy.

Hi! How did you take the guts out of your lamp? I've got a ceramic lamp with a brass base but I just want the innards but I want to make sure I don't break anything essential in the process of smashing/cutting through it.

Really nice. The look goes really well with the shade. Nice project.

Thanks, it was a quick fun build

That's the best kind! :)

Such a simple idea, but I love the way it looks!

Great job! It is beautiful and rustic. :)

thank you! I love your work!
