Lego Lamp Love

Once I laid eyes on the Bran lamp, I knew what I had to do.

This hack is super simple, just loosen the ‘cap’ with a hair dryer and fill it up. The heat from the hair dryer weakens the glue so the top pops right off. I must say though that I was rather afraid the glass might shatter; as it is there is a small crack on the glass so keep the heat even.

Once done I closed the cap and sealed it up with blu tack so that I can add more bricks or change it up as needed!

    Which bulbs do you use in the lamp? I purchased the bran lamp a while ago, and ikea was out of stock of the bulb that fits in it. Thanks!

  2. Such a clever idea and really original. I wonder how it would turn out it you combined the lego bricks with family lights too.

    Super work. Nice colours and great juxtaposition of the sharp block angles with the curvy glass.

    I did the exact same thing with my lamp! Except the hair dryer method did not work. My husband and I tried that, along with pouring boiling water over it. What finally worked was him taking a screw driver into the edge and banging it with a hammer…sounds like it would break, but ours was fine.
