A few months ago, I bought some nice side tables for my couch. When I was laying on my sofa in the evening, I was always facing the problem that I have no proper light to read a book. That is why I decided to build a table lamp for my side table. In an easy 4 step approach I will show you how to get the best results.

I created a pinboard on pinterest with all table lamps that I loved to get inspired for my own creation.

Hot Glue Gun sticks: 9,61€ / 20 pieces = 0,16€ per table lamp (1/3 piece)
