DIY: Custom Lighting from any Transluscent Container

It seems that there is no shortage of DIY lamp projects here at unplggd. You've got Bent Ply and Tripods. Ikea spare parts and a little home made shoji Zen. Now we can add some green to that list....in a reduce, reuse, recycle kind of way with the Bidon lamp from R3Project.

What do you need?

  • a used translucent plastic container
  • a CFL bulb
  • a bulb fitting with plug
  • a sharp Stanley knife

With some steady handed cutting, you can fit the bulb holder to the cap and get a nice milky white glow from your ceiling, or wall, or table top.
