Good day! I saw in the store IKEA floor lamp YPPERLIG. I liked the lamp, I thought that this can be done on their own.

And went to the hardware store, bought the following:

·        Two drain plugs with a diameter of 160 and 200 mm.

·        Aluminum pipe with a diameter of 14 mm and a length of 2 m.

·        Led lamp.

·        Wire, plug and switch.

·        Construction gypsum.

·        PVA glue.

·        Paint.

1 step.

Let's make a stand of our lamp. To do this, take the aluminum tube and begin to bend it on both sides. The top should be a little longer than the bottom.

2 step.

Paint our stand in red

3 step.

Need to seal the seams of the led lamp and extend the wire

4 step.

Install the lamp in the center of the plug. fix the lamp support vertically and fill with construction gypsum

5 step.

Wait until the plaster hardens. Clean the lamp.

6 step.

Next you need to make the base of our lamp. The procedure is almost identical to the manufacture of the canopy. But there are a couple of differences.

Take the housing from the led lamp driver and seal it.

7 step.

Stretch the wire into the driver housing. Gloss over it all with sealant. Arrange inside a large plug and fill with plaster.

8 step.

Wait until the plaster hardens. Remove it from the form

9 step.

Take out the wire and solder it to the LED driver. Insulate the wires with hot glue.

10 step

Fasten 4 rubber feet and the lamp is ready!

The lamp fitted perfectly into my interior. I really liked the texture of the plaster. Also, The lamp was much cheaper than the original. :)

it is convenient to work at the computer...

    Aren't we crafty! Love it! But I wonder, how much money you saved compared to the IKEA inspiration lamp?
