I know I say this all the time but this DIY camera tripod lamp is super easy and can be made in just one weekend.
Here is what you are going to need to do your tripod lamp.
- wooden tripod
- vintage camera ( I got a Agfa box camera and Kodak pony 135)
- lamp rewiring kit
- 5/16 bolt
- black yarn
- screw driver
- Edison light bulb (home depot)
I began by putting together the lamp rewiring lamp. However, I still got my hubby to do it for me, hehe.
The lamp kit is super easy to wire and it comes with step by step instructions. Once the kit was completed I started to cover the wire with black yarn.
The vintage box camera was very easy to take apart, all you have to do is to remove the metal box from the inside of the cardboard camera. The kodak camera is a lot more complicated and I had to go online to figure out how to take it apart since it has a lot of mechanical parts. The good thing is that you can usually find anything online.
