Night Light

When my longstanding cheap-but-did-the-job bedside lamp broke a little while ago, I found it really hard to find something equally well priced but nice looking to replace it. No doubt Ikea would have come up trumps, but a visit there is a bit of a trek. So, I decided, in the absence of any existing solutions, to make my own lamp. I'd seen some lovely blue water bottles (Ty Nant) in my local supermarket, so I bought one of those, and went to a lighting shop to get a very cheap fixture that goes into the top of a bottle. Then, using the old lampshade skeleton, I - quite roughly - sewed a length of old Indian fabric to the top and bottom, et voila, hey presto, let there be light!!
