We have had this ugly lamp in the bedroom for years. I don’t even know where it came from. I have always hated it and want to tear it apart someday and build my own. I was telling a good friend of mine that I was thinking of building a lamp and I had this old ugly lamp that I could get the hardware from. I was telling him the idea I had and wasn’t sure if it would work. His reply was classic, “I would rather have an ugly lamp I made vs just an ugly lamp.” I could have put it better. Thank you Matt Stansberry for the wood for the project and the never ending motivation. Can’t wait till your a YouTuber.
