Transform ordinary pots or planters into extraordinary table lamps with very little time and money―no electrician required!
After the plaster dries enough so that the pipe does not budge, attach the harp to the socket. Place your lampshade atop the harp, and secure with a finial. The cord should run from the side of the socket, over the top edge of the pot, and to an outlet. (Editor’s tip: Stick adhesive felt pads, available at a home-improvement store, on the bottom of the pot so it won’t scratch your table.)
