Old Books = New Lamp

Old Books = New Lamp

Okay, we have a way to reuse old plastic toys, but what about old hardback books? Make another lamp, of course. Thanks to the wire shade, I'm getting a kind of steampunk vibe from this creation; however, with a fabric shade, it would change the 'feel' completely. As with most lamp projects, the supplies to make it are minimal and include the following:

  • old hardbacks, about 8
  • lamp kit
  • lamp shade
  • spray paint
  • drill
  • 1/2" drill bit
  • razor blade or box cutter
  • 1-1/4" screws
  • 2" screws
  • screwdriver
