Socker Lamps





Materials: SOCKER zink flower pot, HEMMA cord set

Description: We needed some cheap lamps for our upstairs hall and stairs. Searching through the lamp and lighting section of our local IKEA, didn’t give us the solution, so my husband came up with the idea of taking the SOCKER galvanized steel flower pot, cut a hole in the button matching the size of the HEMMA cord set using a jigsaw with a blade for cutting metal.

Screw the cord set on, put in a light bulb and hang your lamp up. Perfect lighting for a busy hall, for less than $8 a lamp.

  1. Excellent hack. Nicely done.

    Very nice, I really like the look. The only improvement I can see would have been to run the cable through the ceiling instead of attaching it underneath like that. I can understand if you don’t really want to drill lots of holes though in case you end up moving/changing things.
