Materials: IKEA lamps, drift wood, drill

Description: I saw this hack at a rental vacation home in Corsica, France, and just had to share it. Seems pretty straight-forward.

1. Choose IKEA table lamp (or floor lamp if more ambitious) where the post can be unscrewed from the base, or the top can be taken off.

2. Collect lots of driftwood.

3. Drill a hole through the middle of each piece of driftwood.

4. Arrange driftwood on the lamp post.

5. Reassemble lamp.

One of the lamps is an IKEA lamp, the other one might be different, but the picture turned out better, so I’m still including it.

Enjoy.
