34 Wood Lamps You’ll Want to DIY Immediately

Wood is one of the most popular materials in interior design and it’s mostly because of its variety of colors, textures, shapes and patterns. Any piece of wood can be used to add personality to a room and emphasize your unique style and we love this material for lighting. In today’s round-up post, we found 34 wood lamps that look so nice you will want to DIY immediately.

Wood lamps look very nice and can be customized to match your home decor, be it rustic, modern, minimalist or simply laid back and homey. This material adds warmth and elegance, it’s easy to work with and pretty cheap to acquire. You can use new wood, recycle old wood elements from cabinets, wool spools, or you could even give driftwood a try. Yes, you read that right, driftwood makes beautiful lamp bases. Here’s what Jan Dickers, driftwood lamp designer, had to say about finding the right wood for her lamps:

 

“I look for the character, if the timber has a story to tell. Such as its origin, the time it has been in the ocean. The worm holes, the barnacles all add to the feel”.

 

 

 

If you’re recycling old wood, you can spruce it up to look appealing once again with sanding, staining and waxing. Wood accents on lamps can be spruced up by sanding off the original finish and staining or painting the wood. Consult your local hardware store for the proper sandpaper grits to ensure a smooth and even surface. If you’re giving a makeover to an old wood lamp, make sure you disassemble it first before sanding.
