Rimfrost table lamp

Iris makes a big bold light for her room by mating 2 Ikea lamps together.

“As a renter, I find it difficult to hang ceiling lamps in an attractive way without either permanent damage or cords everywhere. And so, I hacked together an Ikea Rimfrost ceiling chandelier shade, with another Ikea lamp shade, and an Ikea Januari lamp base to turn the ceiling lamp into a table lamp. The only additional materials the hack required was a bit of wire, to combine the two shades together. My step-by-step photos are here. But it’s essentially a really simple hack.”

    Table lamp broke within 4 months of normal use. Floor lamp flickers every day now, and is probably gona break in the next 2 weeks.

    Beware – use your warranty if you can.
