It’s a super easy-to-use kit of lamp parts that have been tried, tested and specially sourced for you – so you can concentrate on making beautiful lamps, safe in the knowledge that the Salvage Sister has done all the leg work to find you British Safety standard parts that all work perfectly together. If you’ve ever tried making a lamp before you will know how incredibly frustrating it is to find that half your parts don’t work with the other parts, or you have muddled up 2 and 3 core wires, or the threads don’t match!
So here it is – the answer you’ve been waiting for at a really decent price.
You can use this kit to create a lamp and harness your lamp fittings in the bottle of your choice, whether you would like your bottle standing up-right on it’s base or on it’s side housed in a stand you will create for it.
Either way the lamp fittings are secured in the neck of the bottle whether facing in to it, or out of it using the threaded hollow bar & a variety of fixings included.
Included in the kit are all the components needed to create a lamp, plus the fittings to house them inside any bottle & a handy little rubber grommet incase you want to drill the glass and protect your fabric flex from the edges of the hole.
I have given you plenty of scope for using a wide range of different shape & size bottles, dependant on what size/type of bottle you are using, you may need to cut down your hollow threaded tube. We advise doing this for the best aesthetic finish. (Cutting the thread bar down is super quick & easy with a metal hacksaw, you can always reuse the leftovers for another lamp).
