While looking for a new table lamp for my living room, I saw a beautiful lamp made of marble, but at $120, it was a bit more than I would consider spending. So here is my attempt to make a cheap imitation.
I used stone tiles glued together and a cheap picture frame as the base. The tiles cost about $3.00, the frame $1.00 and the light socket and cord about $9.00.
Glue one side piece to another forming a 90 degree angle. You may need something to prop it up so that it remains at the proper angle as the glue cures. Repeat with the remaining two pieces. Allow glue to cure before you continue.
Apply glue to the edge of each of the two 90 degree pieces and place one on top of the other forming a box. Allow glue to cure.
