Look at our lamp!! My bedside lamp has been mostly broken for months and completely broken for weeks. So I bought a new wire and lightbulb holder thing to fix it but the standard lamp wires with switch attached weren't long enough for that lamp. So finally we decided to make our own. The base is a plate I bought last year but couldn't use because I couldn't get the sticky-ness off from the sticker. The neck is some plumbing thing I bought just for the lamp. And the chade is a tin can from chick peas. It was fun to make together and we both think it's quite lovely.
