Apartment: DIY Lamp with Copper Pipe

copper pipe DIY lamp

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.
