You can totally make a DIY floor lamp if you always wanted one of them, but never found something you absolutely love or don’t want to spend too much money on it. The only thing is that you have to be really careful with electricity and make sure that you connect all those wires properly to make a decent working lamp.
So, the first thing you need to do is to choose one of the numerous DIY floor lamp ideas, which you may find online or in one of those awesome handmade-themed magazines. I suggest that you should try building something not too difficult if you’re not familiar with this type of projects.
For instance, you may transform a couple of pieces of old furniture into an amazingly looking DIY floor lamp shade. You may pick up a base – a wooden night stand without its back and front part and attach a piece of old vintage-looking railing to it. Use the wood glue and clamps for this matter. Paint the wooden base if you want. Secure the lampshade part of the feature when it’s dry. You may find a tutorial on how to make it out of piece of canvas fabric and wires as well. Conceal the wire, secure the light bulb cartridge and you’re done.
If you want to build a unique DIY tripod floor lamp, you may go out to a local park or forest to pick up a bunch of tall dry fallen tree branches. You’ll need a flat base to secure them and make them stand on the floor. A flat section of a tree trunk with growing rings showing will be amazing for that matter. Secure the branches and the base in a tripod shape together. Use an electric screwdriver and a bunch or screws for that matter. Attach an electric rod with a light bulb cartridge or a small nature-style lampshade to this structure and enjoy your masterpiece.
