Personalise your Gyllen lamp with your own image

Materials: Gyllen Lamp and a piece of 5mm clear acrylic

Description: That ever popular Gyllen lamp with their slightly limiting range of designs. Why not ditch the panel and drop one in featuring your own image? It makes for a great personalized night light.

Either mount a duratrans film to the reverse of a piece of 5mm acrylic or print directly on to a piece of opal acrylic.

Any Large Format Company/Bureau will be able to point you in the right direction

    What fun. Always looking for something to make our photos part of our lives… this will be a terrific addition. Now if I can just wire a series to the switch in the upstairs hallway… what fun going to bed would be!

    great idea the designs are terrible usually when you buy them in ikea but it just goes to show what you can do if you get a little creative!
