0iPodGuyBest Answer 12 years ago You will need the screw-in base for the bulbs, the fixture and a wire with a plug. You can harvest most everything you need from an old lamp. Connect all like-colored wires (black to black, white to white). If you're using a switch, wire that in too. Only thing you should really be careful about is to not exceed the base's limit, but with 4W bulbs, I'm sure you'll be fine.
