I’m pretty satisfied with this weekend DIY project. Made a cute simple lamp in the corner of my living room out of copper piping and an edison lightbulb. All the supplies were bought at home depot for a total of $46 from the piping and lighting sections. On the left is a copper pipe cutter. I will spare you the instructions since it’s pretty intuitive. The glow from these vintage-y bulbs are flattering to every skintone, has the hue of candle light but enough brightness to light a small room.
