Something different... cool Ikea hack! DIY lamp


How to turn your old ikea lamp (Dudero) into a cool retro style lamp! it easy and fun!

I've had this lamp for a few years until I decided it no longer fits the design of my apartment. So I decided to give it a little makeover.
This is a really easy and cheap DIY that makes a lot of difference.

You'll need three things:
1. Ikea floor lamp (Dudero).



2. Black matte spray paint.
3. Two Retro Edison Filament Lamp Bulb.
    I found mine for really cheap on aliexpress
    Keep in mind that you need to choose the E14 bulb for this kind of lamp.






The process:
1. Remove the paper shade that covers the lamp.






2. Clean it from any dirt or dust.
3. Start spraying (this is the fun part!) make sure to roll some newspapers on the floor before you spray so the surface will remain clean.




After it dries you can screw the light bulb and that's it! You've got a new retro lamp!
