DIY | World’s easiest expandable bedside lamp

19 Aug

For about twenty bucks and the same increment of minutes of your sweet, precious DIY time, you can make a cool lamp out of an awesome Ikea mirror bendie thingie. And yes, that is the technical Ikea term. Daniel over at Manhattan Nest had stroke of brilliance in coming up with this cute and basic DIY project, complete with “cute, twisted red cloth wire” to limit unwanted electrical shocks.  He’s calling the project Frackhack since the bendie thingie is apparently called the Frack by super nerds who don’t want to use its real name (bendie thingie HELLO!). You really only need like 6 or 7 supply items (and nerves of steel when you plug your baby in!) and the directions are easy to follow, with lots of pictures just the way I likes it.  Thanks, nerdy ranting DIY guy. And I mean that as a compliment. Link to this project.
