    I just want to re-decorate my bedroom, planning to buy a lamp beside my bed. I hope my room is that neither too bright nor too dark when lighting up. What kind of lamps would you buy? How about the floor lamp? Could someone give some advice?

    Hi, hopefully someone can help me or point me in the direction of a forum who can. I was recently looking into replacing my current bedroom lamp, but I love it so much I thought maybe some refurbishment and a paint job would breathe new life into it. Not sure where to start, though. I'm not sure...

    Dear DIY I am renovating a broken lamp called Muuto Leaf floor lamp (see pictures). The touch sensor for this LED lamp is broken and I am going to replace it, however I am unable to open it up. I think it is glued but I am not sure, there is no screws. As you can see I have tried to separate...

    Looking for tips on how to keep the lantern level on the pole? It fits over the top of the pole but there are a few millimeters of space between the lantern top and the pole base so it wiggles. There's some snap on looking things and a hole for a screw. I guess I could try finding a black...

    Hi all. I just bought some cheap floor lamps at Walmart that were on deep discount, and the main lamp has a 3 way socket. I want to change the socket to a standard because, 3 way LED's are expensive, and I don't like running the 3 way Incan's in the warmer months because of the heat. I...

    So I bought this hideous lamp thing for my husband on our first Christmas when we were completely broke. He loves it. Now, 10 years later, I would like to surprise him by rewiring it. I thought it would be as simple as a lamp kit, but I think it may be more complicated. I am a seasoned DIYer...

    I would like to connect this lighting fixture to a plug. I have a plug switch and wire setup (SPT-1 wire and polarized plug 18AWG). Is it possible to connect it to the lighting fixture, and if so is there a way around the black and white wire need to be? Thank you in advance for your help.

    Thanks in advance. I'm just trying to wire a table lamp with multiple bulbs and I have a few questions. I've wired chandeliers several times but I always clustered the wires - this won't work on this lamp. I've attached a diagram. I believe I've drawn a parallel circuit but not sure. Couple...

    Hi all! So, this might be a bit complicated for a first attempt lamp building, but I'd really love to try to replicate (or come close to) this awesome Edison bulb lamp I saw on Etsy (for my own use - not to sell) https://www.etsy.com/listing/4895851...able-lamp-desk. I've been doing some...

    Hi all, I wanted to brighten up my relatively dim bathroom and thought to put up a vanity light bar. That particular vanity bar is meant to be hard-wired, but I don't have the tools, knowledge, or permission (I'm a renter) to do that. So I thought it would be easier to buy a lamp cord with a...

    One of my desk lamps took a dive off of a set of shelves in to a pile of dirty laundry today. When it landed, the light went out. Upon further inspection, i discovered that the light bulb wasnt broken, and that the two plastic pieces of the socket that were supposed to be screwed together were...

    I'm attempting to build a custom lamp out of a mini beer keg, in it I want to incorporate a 5V USB charger and a 120V AC port. I also want to incorporate an inline fuse to protect any electronics attached. What fuse should I use for this application? I would prefer a blade type fuse if possible...

    Hi, a little background: I live in a very old house. I rent, so I pretty much have to deal with what I've got unless something is demonstrably broken. I live on the 2nd and 3rd floor of the building; another tenant lives on the 1st floor. The original wiring is Knob & Tube, but much of it has...

    Hello, I want to make a bright lamp with a glass coca cola bottle. I have a 50 watt 12v Halogen Tungsten Bulb, some wiring, a switch and 12v batteries. I've been told that Halogen bulbs generate a lot of heat and emits UV rays, so this is not such a good idea. Does anyone have any...

    Hi all, I have a lamp from about 6 years ago that I'd like to repair. During a move, the power cable (which is connected directly to a small white light fitting which held the globe) got damaged when the cable got pulled out of the fitting. Both the globe/fitting and cable have since been...
