hello, this is my first public statement, sorry for my English and any errors in the guide.

Taking a cue from the following:

-Convert a Tea Light


I created a lamp by transforming the ikea rotea candle holder

Step 1: Necessary Tools and Materials

  • Tools :
    • Drill and tip of 1 cm
    • pliers;
    • screwdrivers,
    • stripper
  • Materials:
    • Tea Light Lantern ("Rotera" from IKEA),
    • Retro Vintage Twist Braided Fabric Cable
    • Antique E27 Light Bulb Screw

    • Grip Clamp

    • current switch retro style and the plug

    • retro style LED lamp (E27)

    • spray paint color copper

    • threaded bar hollow and nut

Step 2: Spray Painting

First you have to remove all the glass from the lamp.

then the candle holder is drilled in the upper part, with a 1 cm hole, in which the threaded rod will be inserted.

Once all the drilling residues have been removed, the whole is painted.

I painted too Grip Clamp.

Step 3: Assemble the Lamp

Cut the threaded bar of 5 cm you can proceed to assemble the whole.

After passing the cables through the threaded bar, screw the lamp holder into it at the bottom.

screw the nut in the upper part to adjust the height of the lamp, then lock it all with the Grip Clamp.

Once you have inserted the electrical iterator, the plug and the light bulb, you're done. your bedside lamp is ready to use

Step 4: Upshot

Ready a retro style bedside lamp.

    Question 2 years ago on Step 3

    Grip clamp ? Did the glass go back in ?

    I would hide the electrical cord someway . All in all I like it very much .


    Answer 2 years ago

    Grip clamps are the clamps positioned above the lamp to hold the wire.

    The glass has been dismantled for painting
