Apartment Living // DIY Edison Bulb Lamp

You have caught me pants-down in the midst of transforming our little 1-bedroom NYC apartment…

I am constrained by the following: size of apartment (=small), size of budget (=very limited) and level of interior decorating experience (=next to none)…  but here I am giving it my best shot!

Challenge 1: Sort out the lighting situation in the bedroom – ACCOMPLISHED

Disclaimer: I am not an electrician or an interior designer, so seek professional advice before you DIY!


It all adds up to a pretty inexpensive lamp if you ask me!

It is so easy.. Step one: install Ikea bracket to wall

Step two: thread through cord (without bulb!)  Step three: attach bulb    Step four: plug cord into wall and turn on!

The bulbs have quite a dark glow, and in the picture above we used an additional light source we already have in our bedroom

  1. Fab idea! I live the look. Simple and chic! Way to go. And I’d say quite budget friendly and easy to pack up for the next move! Have a great Thursday! 🙂 Best, Koko
