Pottery Barn sells these bottles for a ridiculous amount of $$$, but luckily I found a great deal on one and turned it into a lamp. All I did was buy a bottle lamp kit and harp at Lowe’s and away I went.

    This is gorgeous. It reminds me of ones I’ve seen in PB or Crate & Barrel. I love the color of the bottle and the shade is beautiful. I’m visiting from TT & J.

    That is such a wonderful idea. Now I know what to do with the large wine bottle I would at a store in Va beach. Thank you for sharing. So the wire for the lamp does it go on the outside. I don’t recall reading about drilling a hole. Pining this to my to do list.

      Vidya, thanks for stopping by! This is super easy to do! Yes, the wire stays on the outside. It just hangs down form the back. Once you buy the kit, you will see.

    Jenna, I LOVE this! I gotta try this. I have a jar like this that I don’t know what to do with other than stick pennies in it LOL

    Great job! I would really like to know how you fastened the *item I don’t have the English word for but is where one puts the bulb* to the bottle neck.
    Best regards, Charlotte

      Hi Charlotte! There is a rubber stopper type thing (for lack of better word) that you just pop into the bottle neck. You have to squeeze it in. I did add a ring of super glue around mine once it was in the bottle. Hope that helps!
