Building A Lamp

Building A Lamp

So I wanted to change my lamp over the dining table, I had one there that was just a circle because the room used to be the sitting room, which I changed to the Dinning room. I went out looking at lamps and what style I wanted and decided I could build one for less and I also get to say hey I built that while it may not be perfect its good and mine, I paid about half the amount to the one I liked.

 

As you can see from above the main fixture is done, wood part is completed, then I had to figure out the lighting, I purchased a bathroom vanity light the cheap ones so I have all wiring and pretty covers for the bulbs. That will make life a little easier for me even though I had to extend the wires at least it was all there ready to go.

After the testing and painting was completed, had to figure out how to work out the ceiling part, I built a pretty quick box to put up there than used screw caps to make it prettier in the sky.

For the wiring I just ran some 2 core down each side one is live and the other is dead, so that I have the hanging support needed.

Here is the Finished Product
