DIY Industrial Pipe Lamp

3 Materials
2 Hours

Use pipe pieces to build a DIY floor lamp. You can customize this lamp with any size pieces to custom fit your space.

Design your lamp and purchase your piping pieces. We actually picked pieces and assembled them a bit in the hardware store to be sure we were getting exactly what we needed.

Use small elbows and pipe pieces to create a base. Elbows make great feet! You can adjust what size pieces you use based on the size that you want your lamp to be. Just make sure that you have an open socket pointing up in the middle!

Add a long pipe to that empty socket. This should be the height that you want the lamp to be.

String a lamp kit wire through the pipes. Be sure that the cord is long enough to reach all of the way through.

Follow the directions on the lamp kit to wire it up. If you have a hard time getting the wires through the pipe, you can tie a piece of string onto the end of the wire and pass that thru the longer pipes. Attach a lampshade for a finished look.

Enjoy your industrial lamp!
