Materials: Vika Oleby Table leg, Hemma Cord set, Orgel paper shade, drywall anchors
Description: This is a $25 alternative to boring/ugly/expensive lighting. I installed one on each side of my living room.
It’s very easy–just secure the table leg into the wall with some drywall anchors, secure the cord to the top of the leg with one of those little plastic cord tie-down things, and there you go.
I still plan to secure the cord to the wall and paint it to match the wall color.
