DIY Lamp!!!
Below is the inspiration
for several $100 from
an expensive home design website...

Now here is the creation
from Team Meyer for under $40!!!
 

My husband and I spent over 6 hours in 100 degree heat
in the garage working on this amazing project together.
I bought the books indvidually from a lady who inherited
her mother's library in hues of orange.  She did wonder
why I liked The Hardy Boys and Inorganic Chemistry as the
same person's reading interest! I didn't tell her that I was
planning on drilling a hole through them; luckily the hole
is only 1/2 inch wide so you can still read around the text
if necessary! We disassembled/tore open an old lamp to use
for the wiring.  While I put the books on the post, my husband
was trying to get the wires to cooperate.

A bit of glue, patience, and creativity; we were able make a
successful and beautiful new lamp!
