When our customers share their DIY lamps, they make our day. It’s not just because we get to see our lamp kits in action. We love it when we see customers adding their unique touch to a DIY project, that specific signature that gives that lamp personality. And in today’s Customer Feature, we have a cool recycling project that showcases a bourbon bottle, a candlestick holder and a message that makes this lamp all the more personal and unique.
I Like That Lamp customer AJ shared with us his DIY lamp project on Twitter and it just shows how easy it is to create a cool new lamp when you get the courage to combine different elements. AJ didn’t just recycle an old bourbon bottle into a new lamp. He used it to convey a message.
" I made a lamp out of a candlestick holder I made out of a bourbon bottle. Thanks @ilikethatlamp for the kit! (and @chunklet for the sticker)"
AJ’s DIY bottle lamp was made using a bourbon bottle, this electrical wiring kit and a candlestick holder. It’s the tiny details that swept us off our feet. We loved how the wax was dripping on the bottle and how this customer decided to use the traditional label to make a personal manifesto.
