I came up with the idea of trying to make one myself. So I've been keeping an eye on tradera/second hand stores for a good lamp "base". And this one came up...
so perfect!! better than I could have hoped for.
after scrubbing and cleaning it, the paint on it was soo yellow...really icky!! and spraypainting it black (took so many layers!), I added some rainbow prisms I bought over e-bay.
...work in progress
It's not completely done yet though, the prisms are only quickly fastened with hooks as of now. I'm gonna make better looking hooks.
Later on I'll buy prisms in other colours (I am gonna be able to easily change colours of the chrystals when I feel like it, how cool is that!?) And I'm gonna do some other tweaking here and there. Maybe add some chained prisms too??
here are some pics of how it looks now:
This lamp has only cost me a total of 600kr (85 USD) this far! so cheap! and the end result is far better than most of the ones I was looking at for inspiration too! Yay for DIY!
