Looking to add some unique and rustic flare to a $15 Ikea table lamp? Stick it in the middle of some found birch.
We love this idea that we came across at Ikeahacker. The Basisk table lamp provides all the bits you need for your light source, while a piece of birch (or any other wood), a drill and a steady hand finishes up the materials list.
The nice thing about this is not only is it cheap, it would look at home in a modern space as much as it would in a more traditional space.
