Turning Landscape Lighting into DIY Outdoor Lamp

Source: Houzz
As a home owner, you’re probably always looking for ways to improve your home and make it an even better place to live. Well, we’ve found a super easy way to DIY your way to a homier backyard. An outdoor lamp can make your landscape feel cozier and add a little class to any outdoor event. It’s easy to turn a landscape light into a fabulous outdoor lamp.

To do this home improvement craft, you’ll need:
A landscape light (we’d recommend this Kichler LED landscape light)
An old lamp shade
A cool-looking lamp base

First, use your scissors to remove the cord from the lamp base. You can cut the cord at the bottom of the lamp, unscrew the socket at the top of the lamp, and then pull through. Once you’ve done that, be sure to cut off the cord from the base of the socket and screw the socket back into the lamp.

Now that the cord is removed, add the lamp shade to your lamp base, ensuring that the wire socket frame is snug on the socket. Place the landscape light — no need to use the plastic spike here — into the socket, adding padding around the light if needed to achieve a snug fit. Depending on the power of landscape lighting you use, this lamp may provide a subtle light perfect for outdoor parties or a brighter light made for illuminating your outdoor spaces.

That’s it! This DIY outdoor lamp is so easy to put together and can turn your backyard into a chic outdoor space in no time. This cute lamp is perfect for areas where you need a little more subdued landscape lighting, such as on a side table next to chairs or any other space made for relaxing.
