Finials are often the forgotten part of a lamp. Most people wouldn't even know what a finial is! What a state for these critical pieces of lamp hardware. Instead of having a plain metal finial topping your lamp, why not make your own unique lamp finial? Your lamp deserves better.

I made this cute Dutch windmill lamp finial from an old ceramic figurine I picked up at a thrift store for 50c! Not bad for something that has given my lamp an extra bit of character. Now, making your own lamp finial is now super-easy with our new DIY lamp finial kits. More info on the finial kits below the jump. 



Here's how to make your own: 


1) Find a small & light object to turn into a finial.

2) Paint or decorate your object as desired. For my windmill finial, I spray painted it black all over.

3) Buy a swiveling finial insert that can either be glued to the base of your small object or inserted into a drilled hole.

4) Use our lampshade glue to attach the finial insert to the base of your finial object. Let dry.

4) Screw the finial onto your lamp’s harp or lampshade adapter.

That's it!



Making lamp finials is an easy, fast way to give your lamp a unique twist. We can't wait to bring you more DIY finial ideas!

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.
