Pallet style bed lamps
for my new bed.
I realized fast that a bed like this needed matching bed lights.
Again I wanted it to be cheap and simple and able to be made from pallets.
I had purchased two clips lamps, this looked ok, not crisp but ok, but was hopeless to use for reading.
So back to the workshop, cut up some strips of the boards.
Holes in each end and my MaFe branding to finish off.
The ends were rounded on the sander.
I drilled a hole in the end so I could mount some hex head bolts.
They were fastened with epoxy.
And so I was able to use the hardware on the clips lamps.
To hold the cable I used strips, think this matched the industrial pallet look.
Wing nut and a rubber washer to hold the two parts of the arm together.
And the same principal for the base of the lamp.
It was mounted directly to the bed side.
And here we are!
The lamp on the bed.
And the head can turn for a good reading light.
What more can I ask for?
Hope this can bring some inspiration, at least some light.
