Have you ever thought about making a lamp? It seems difficult, that is, until I started looking up tutorials.

One of my favorites was for these literary book page lamps. Aren’t they cool? I’ve rounded up a few others, in addition to some basic lamp revamps and shade DIYs that I discovered as well.
