Buying a thrift store lamp and giving it a makeover is a popular theme on Pinterest. Mixed in with the simple makeovers are more complex lamp DIYs, where the maker creates a lamp out of something else. For example: wine bottles, reclaimed wood, teapots . . . you get the idea!
Here are 10 unique DIY projects to get your own creative juices flowing.
Please note: Each project below is specifically about the lamp itself, not the shade.
