This project was floating around the internet for a while and I was always faszinated by the Death Star idea.
With my boyfriend moving in and the new space caused by a larger flat, the possibility was there and I took it ;)
Since I haven't found an Instructable of this project here, I thought I will give it a try for my first time.
So enjoy and I'm open for any kind of input to make things better or improve my writing.
I'm participating in the "SCI-FI" contest here on Instructables. If you like this Instructable and feel like it's a worthy winner, it would be great if you'd give me a vote. Thank you very much.
First step ist of course - buy an IKEA PS 2014 lamp.
We decided to get the biggest one in copper/white.It is supposed to hang over the bed in our slightly Star Wars themed bedroom, so why get small ;)
I used a can of light grey spray paint from the local hardware store.Do this outside because of the fumes and the necessary ventilation.If you want to have it perfect - cover the copper insides BEFORE you spraypaint the outsides. The mist of the spray dulled the sheen a tiny bit - it doesn't bother us, but if you want it super shiny - cover it up. Or don't use spray paint and brush the light grey instead. In my case it was a matter of time and not wanting to paint them all by hand.You'll end up with an light grey ball after assembling it like the instruction tells you.
