Brynne of The Gathered Home fell in love with the Block 2 light created by the talented Henry Pilcher and immediately knew she wanted to do a “spinoff” DIY. Instead of recreating the look with wood as in the original, Brynne decided to use copper plumbing pipe. She also used an Ikea Foto pendant, spray painted glossy black, and built the icosahedron around it with copper pipe pieces and copper wire. Inspiration: $2111. Brynne’s DIY version: $50.
Even a cross-country move cannot squelch the design and DIY savvy of Sarah from Sarah M. Dorsey. The girl is uber talented! Sarah busted just enough of her tools out of boxes to create this modern tripod floor lamp from copper piping. DIYing an entire lamp may sound challenging, but believe me when I say that Sarah’s tutorial makes it as easy as pie!
