Was going to buy a standard lamp for my lovely girlfriend so she could read books and write things, you know the way.. saw one in the Stillorgan decor centre that was a hybrid between a standard and a desk lamp, thought- that's the one! Was about to hitch the trailer onto my bike to go down and get one when a thought struck- make the bugger myself! Am doing some plumbing at the moment so had a good bit of copper pipe and connections lying around, cost around ten euro total for the cable, switch and the rubber feet. The shade and bendy bit are from an old desk lamp. If you can wire a plug you can do the electrics.
