The Ehlers Lid-light
Materials: Knodd lid, Drill, rubberthingy from car, green wire, 2 Hemma, 2 Sparsam
Description: I bought a Knodd and used the bucket as a planter.
Since I had a green theme going, I had been looking for some green pendels. One day I found the lid, while cleaning, and made this:
1: I measured up the existing holes in the celing wire-exit, and drilled two holes in the lid.
2: Measured across the lid, to find the widest spot. Then, using the bumb in the lid, I drilled 2 holes, directly across eachother.
3: I cut a piece of rubber wireprotection from an old car, and put it in the holes. This is to avoid the edge of the lid to cut throug the insulation on the wire.
4: I replaced the Hemma wire with a green one, I bought in an upscale furniture-store.
5: Then the wires was plugged in with the celing wires, and the lid screwed indto the existing holes.
6: Lastly, the Sparsam bulps was put in, and the light turned on.
It really fits the room well.
