DIY Stone Floor Lamp
If you are searching to give your home a natural vibe, a stone base floor lamp will surely help add a magic touch. Even though the project sounds difficult, it is one of the easiest stone DIY projects you will ever find. Before starting the project you will need to make a plan on how tall you would like your base floor lamp to be, as well as what type of stones you will be using. Although river stones are easy to work with in this project, other stones can be used as well. Once you have a plan set in place, it is time to start putting it into action.
Step 1- Drill holes in the center of your stones. Be sure to wear safety glasses during this process to avoid any accidents.
Step 2- Wash all of the stones to remove any dust left from the drilling process. If you require a stone supplier, there is a helpful company based in the UK called Pennine Aggregates.
Step 3- Time to Glue! As you stack your stones on top of each other and glue them together, be sure that all of your drilled holes line up evenly. If not you will have to start the project over.
Step 4- Let the glue dry for 1-2 hours, depending on the type of adhesive you used.
Step 5- Run your wires through the center of your stones. If you drilled your holes large enough to fit the originally lamp post, be sure to cover up all areas where you can see the post.
Step 6- Connect the wires, add the lamp shade of your choice, and plug it in.
Once your lamp is finished you can start showing off your talent to your family and friends. But don’t stop there. If your stone base lamp is a big hit, keep building and start selling! People thrive on homemade items, especially projects made out of natural items. You can sell your lamps online or even at yard sales. Be sure to set a reasonable price and you will be surprised at how quickly they sell.
