DIY: Map Lamp

If you have an armchair explorer in your house (you know the type, they have a whole drawer in a cabinet stuffed with maps and atlases), then I have a perfect project for that special wanderer. Chez Larsson came up with this easy and fun lampshade project that will add some topography to your living room, without putting a dent in your pocketbook.


What You'll Need

  • Map
  • Cutting surface, such as cutting board
  • Spray adhesive
  • Scissors or Exacto knife

Here's how to do it, from Chez Larsson:

  1. Measure between the edges of the lampshade and cut a long strip that covers the shade and then some.

  3. Let dry, and enjoy!
