We love neat lamps, so when we spotted this DIY inspired by one of our favorite lamps we were thrilled. While we don't have as large of a CCTV presence as our friends across the pond, we still think this lamp makes quite the statement and are glad that this Instructable exists.

Inspired by Spoticam Desk Lamp by Antrepo, shown above, Instructables user BrittLiv has created this simple DIY project that is an inexpensive alternative.

Using the $3.99 Lagra lamp from Ikea and an inexpensive security camera dummy $13.99 from Amazon, she was able to create a lamp that would not only function as additional lighting, but also as a statement piece about privacy.
