Lately I've been getting so many questions on how to make this lamp, and I just wanted to clarify for all of you why I haven't posted the guide on how to DIY it here on my new website. I know that most of you are as passionate about interior as I am, and therefore I'm pretty sure that you can figure out where the inspiration for this particular DIY came from. The problem is though, that this company in question who have made the original were not too pleased about my version, and even less so about me telling you how to make it, and they asked me to take the guide down. This is something that I've thought a lot about, and although I understand their position, I never intended for my version of this lamp to compete with theirs and I didn't make it with the purpose of selling it, and therefore I don't really see the problem. With my lamp I just wanted to show you how easy it is to make something similar for those of us who do not have or simply feel like spending the somewhat obscene amount of money to buy an original. However, I'm not looking to offend anyone with my DIYs or make anyone feel like I'm trying to take credit for anyone else's work, and therefore I've decided to take this guide down for the time being.
However, what I will tell you is that this is a ridiculously easy lamp to make, and if you look at the photos I'm sure you can figure out how to make it without my help! The only thing that you need really is a couple of metal rods, access to a welder and an Ikea Fado Lamp :)
