Spotted: Make a Vintage Camera Lamp
Want to create one-of-a-kind upcycled lighting? Try making a vintage camera lamp!
When this vintage camera lamp came across my Facebook newsfeed, my jaw dropped. I immediately clicked over to see the genius of a woman who created it — Carrie from Lovely Etc. She graciously gives us a step-by-step tutorial (with pictures) on how to take an awesome vintage camera and turn it into an even more awesome camera lamp!
Excuse me as I scour the internet, garage sales, thrift stores, and antique stores to find a camera that I can upcycle! Can’t you see this in a photographer’s studio, a retro or vintage room, or even in a fun craft room? My head is spinning with ideas, guys!
To make your own vintage camera lamp, you will need:
- a vintage camera with a flash
- a keyless socket
- a candelabra base switch cord
- a nightlight bulb
- electrical tape
- a small screwdriver
