Cork lamp base! Yay!

I made this lamp base out of cork contact paper (Target has everything!), a lightbulb socket kit, cardboard tube from a paper towel roll, and some pebbles to give it a nice, sturdy base. 

love the natural look of cork, so it's a nice touch I think. But if I ever decide to change it, I can easily pop the lightbulb socket out of the cardboard tube and re-use the cork contact paper (I didn't remove the backing or anything).

You can find a lovely tutorial for the cork lamp base that inspired this project, as posted on Design*Sponge, here

  1. Oh moy gosh! That is brilliant! I love it!

  2. Lauren, I'm so glad to have found your blog!! Your ideas are so cute! P.S. I made my own planner once... couldn't find one that was perfect. It was sort of cool. When you get to that one, I'll fill you in! I would recommend doing it during a blizzard or some other time that you have nothing else to do!


  3. Thanks! I would love to learn how you made your planner! I was actually just thinking about that project the other day. I'll look for it on your blog. Can't wait!


Thanks for your kind comments!
