Picture of LEDBERG (ikea) easy desk lamp conversion
I run into this LEDBERG string light at the store the other day and bought two without knowing exactly what to do with them, but I already use one set to get some ambiance light behind my tv, and later I used the other one for a cool looking LED desk lamp. So here it is.

Step 2: Assembly

The assembly took me less than an hour, I have to say that the old base help a lot, this was a pretty straight forward project.
It was just a matter of putting together the strip into the aluminum channel.

the nice thing of the Ledberg is that the on/off switch is on the cord close to the light assembly so there is no electrical work involved.

The lamp have 3 strips of led's that can be connected together to the power strip. I use only two of them.
the measure of each of the individual strips is around 10" plus the connection to the power a couple of inches more.
I've cut the Aluminum channel 22" long to fit the 2 strip set up. the thickness of the strip is around 3/8" which fit neatly into the channel.
I set it into the channel with a few pieces of double side tape.

I drill a couple of holes at the bottom of the channel to connect it to the base, as well some cutting to allow the lamp to go up and down.
