No Drilling DIY Glass Lamp

I've been eye balling these for the last few months. Well, I had no money to spend on these almost $200 clear glass lamps and then I got an idea....


I found the bottle lamp hook ups in my tool box. Who knows where it came from  =)

Put it all together;

The vase cost me $2.99 at the Hob Lob and of course I had the 40% off coupon. Genius!!!

Industrial strength E600 $2.99

Then I taped it into position

I waited about 4 hrs before I removed the tape. PS; the extra glue will stay there since it dries hard, so try to rub it off prior to setting.


My word this was so much fun to do last night. And it only took me about 30 mins to put it all together and then there is the waiting time to dry... that was the hardest thing to do ;)

BTW; I don't like the shade but I had to share this DIY ASAP! I can't wait to see how others will stain the glass, fill the dome and other great DIY ideas for it.

Enjoy =)

PS: I've been daily stalking Thrifty Decor Chick... think she'll see this? =)


 **I've replaced the shade w/ the Restoration Hardware one I found at GW. I'm still not satisfied, I'm truly looking for a drum shade in pleather black.
