    Nice simple idea but how does the plastic pot react to the heat from the bulb? Not a problem if one uses fluorescent bulbs but I refuse to use them which is why I ask. When LED bulbs become cheaper & more common, I'd give this a try.

    If one was to draw a decorative pattern in a washable marker on the sides, drilling small holes along the pattern would give a very nice look when the light's on too.

    The plastic pot is far enough from the lamp and there is no heat problem with the 75w light bulb. I didnt use fluorescent lamp because is longer than the pot, and it sticks out. I dont know what kind of light gives LED bulbs, if you try please tell. The light bulb that i used is simple PHILIPS 75w wolfram lamp, and the light is soft and cosy that why i used it.

    I agree with you about the decorative hole patern. I think it will give the surrounding walls interesting light spots.

    I will use dimmer to see how it will work.
