How It All Began

 

KIRI MASTERS, Owner + Founder

Hello! My name is Kiri. You've probably already figured out that I love making lamps and lampshades!

I started DIY-ing my own home lighting when I couldn't find stylish and affordable lighting for my own apartment. When I realized that sourcing the components to make my own lampshade could be difficult and confusing, I set about creating a customizable DIY lampshade kit and I Like That Lamp was born.

Hello! My name is Kiri. You've probably already figured out that I love making lamps and lampshades!

I started DIY-ing my own home lighting when I couldn't find stylish and affordable lighting for my own apartment. When I realized that sourcing the components to make my own lampshade could be difficult and confusing, I set about creating a customizable DIY lampshade kit and I Like That Lamp was born.

 

 

Building on the lampshade kit, I eventually expanded my company's product line to include an array of beginner-friendly DIY lighting kits and high quality component accessories. My goal is to help people make their own custom lighting projects so they don't have to settle for the limited selection of lighting available in stores. Not only is it possible to make a lamp you truly love, it's also fast, easy, and a fraction of the cost of designer lighting!

 

Last year, I wrote my very first E-book! 

 

Making your own lamps is a fun weekend activity that's much easier and affordable than you’d think. Whether you're making a lamp for your own home or as a gift, you’ll have everyone saying, “I like that lamp!”

 

I hope that my kits & tutorials help you in your own lamp making adventures. If there's a specific lamp-making project you'd like to see on the site, connect with me on facebook or send me a message here! 

 

 

In July 2015, I published "Old Lamps, New Life - A DIY Guide to Rewiring and Refinishing Vintage Lamps". It's a comprehensive (30+) guide full of tutorials and secrets that I learned from years of pulling apart lamps and putting them back together. It's part before-and-after project, part handbook, and part bonus video content, so you can watch & learn the key concepts and techniques of lamp restoration. Find out more about the book here.
