coke bottle lamp
hi! am back from my break. which flew by just too quickly. don’t holidays always feel that way?
anyways, here’s a new one from klaus. i like the retro/vintage feel of this coke bottle lamp and it would look great mounted in the kitchen or bar area.
basically, what you need is an ikea rationell pot lid rack, a long filament tubular incandescent bulb (ie. linestra lights. klaus found his at a hardware store, complete with mounting, for about $10) and 12 small contour coke bottles.
- cut the horizontal bits out of the lid holder
- bend it until the sides are parallel. click for steps.
- mount lamp on wall, mount holder around it
- bend the spokes to point almost straight up, and stick the bottles in.
experiment with bottles of different colours and shapes and you may get even more surprising results.
