DIY: Lamp Cord of Wooden Beads

March 12, 2012

Spotted at Llot Llov, a Berlin-based design studio, a lamp with a quirky wooden-bead cord. We were instantly enamored and had to try our hands at our own version.

Above: My version, which is a bit more rustic; I started with an inexpensive pendant light from West Elm.

Materials

Instructions

  • Use scissors to cut the plug off from end of lamp cord.
