Intro: Luminaire for Kids'room
I am going to be a dad and for the baby boy room I waanted something special !
The decoration of the room is around funny monsters so I tried to find a luminaire on the internet with funny monsters but found nothing !
During the weekend, I have done this luminaire with a monster shape.
Here are steps !
Step 1: Make It Safe : Using Metal to Dissipate Heat
I wanted to do a funny lamp but safety first !
I used an old metal plate (will disspate the heat and won't burn) and I cut it with an aviation snips (this part is quite hard and long especially if you have detailed cut).
I draw the shape of the monster, cut one and use it has a pattern to cut others.
Then I pre-pierced the metal plate to cut eyes and mouth.
it just remains to attached the 3 monsters together with screws and bolts.
Step 2: Paint and Attach to the Ceiling
I attached the 3 monsters together and create a fixation to the ceiling.
Now everything is hold together let go for the paint !
It needs 2 coats ! just let dry and this finish :)
Step 3: This Is Done
Once done it looks like this.
Not over eating the paint I am using low temperature bulb, you with baby safety fist :)
