sexy samtid bedside lamp
another hack from adam who a little while back sent in the benjamin laptop stand. this time it’s a samtid lamp shade pimp.
“i love the samtid as it, but it’s very bright for a bedside lamp. i found a sheet of self adhesive walnut laminate from a woodworking store that was only $15. i trimmed the veneer down to the approximate size, peeled off the backing, and stuck the samtid shade down.
the plastic shade makes a sturdy base for the laminate – press firmly and make sure it sticks. i used a hole punch to cut the holes out for the frame.
once the shade is assembled as normal i put two coats of shellac onto it, let it dry, and presto! a sexy modern lampshade.
tip: you could also do this hack with some sticky vinyl cutouts similar to lilybee’s table hack.”
