I love a knock off challenge so I said of course! I started looking for the perfect (and perfectly priced) teacups and saucers for the project right away but I was coming up empty. Plus, I wasn't completely sure how I was going to drill the holes for the lamp kit through the pottery anyway…so I waited.
Then one day I was perusing TJ Maxx and found six awesome teacup & saucer sets on clearance for two bucks a pop. I bought 'em! But I was still worried about the drilling so they sat in my dining room waiting for me.
Then yesterday I said aw, heck I'm going for it! And...check it out! What was I waiting for?!
- 3 cup & saucer sets (or more if you want a taller lamp) - $6
- Epoxy - Gorilla Glue - $4.97
- Lamp kit - $9.97
- Drill & masonry bit - on hand
Step 3: Using the directions on the lamp kit, put together the lamp pieces. My kit came with an enormous harp which I did not use since most small shades attached around the lightbulb. I also needed to use a a small plastic tube to raise the socket up out of the top teacup. I just threaded the plastic tube on before the socket and used the gorilla glue to keep it in place.
