Lighten up a little with this brilliant DIY Bottle Lamps tutorial by Kiri Masters of ilikethatlamp.

Bottle lamps are quite possibly the best introduction to lamp-making. Most people have a (very healthy) respect for electricity and are reluctant to mess around with wiring. Bottle lamp converter kits, however, provide an easy and low-risk way to make your own lamp base with something you probably already have around the home: wine or liquor bottles.

Of course, every good lamp needs a shade, and you can learn how you make your own from Kiri’s tutorial, or take a class from her in Brooklyn on April 26th.
