DIY Dipped Tripod Floor Lamp



A vintage surveyor's tripod found on eBay is the base (literally) for this DIY floor lamp. This easy project took just 30 minutes plus drying time. When the tripod arrived, it was a flat gray. To add some excitement, I spray painted it a metallic silver. Then I taped off the bottom of each leg and painted on a fun coral color for contrast.









I used one of our own I like that lamp DIY Lampshade Making Supplies for the electrical wiring part of making the lamp. These kits are able to be customized, so I chose a lamp cord & socket finish (nickel & silver) to suit my lamp base and a longer cord length since it is a floor lamp.





The instructions included in the kit are easy to follow, and the wiring of the lamp takes about 10 or 15 minutes.





Topped with a cut out drum lampshade, it's a chic and eye-catching transformation. 


Other kinds of industrial or household stands and tripods make great floor or table lamps - like this lamp made from a drum stand. You can buy customizable DIY electrical lamp kits right here at the I like that lamp shop.

My husband and I lost 1.1m worth of Bitcoins to a fake cryptocurrency investment platform. A few months back, we saw an opportunity to invest in cryptocurrency to make huge profits from our investments. We contacted a broker online who was pretending to be an account manager for a forex trading firm, we invested a huge part of our retirement savings and business money into this platform not realizing it was all a sc^m to steal away our money. After weeks of trying to withdraw, this broker continued to request more money until we were broke and in debt, it felt as if we were losing our life. Fortunately for us, we saw an article about a recovery hacker called HACKER RODNEY CRYPTO TRACES AND RECOVERY , we were not in a hurry to contact them but we did some research about their services and found out they could help us recover our money from these scammers, we contacted Refund Policy and in a space of 72 hours, they were able to recover everything, this company did a thorough investigation with the information we provided them and ensured that every penny was returned to us, it felt so unreal how they were able to recover everything we have lost. We are truly grateful for the help of HACKER RODNEY CRYPTO TRACES AND RECOVERY home and we are putting this out there to everyone who needs their services.
