I started making bottle lamps from recycled bottles awhile back. These lamps have become pretty popular at the festivals and shows I attend, as well as my Etsy store. Each bottle lamp is drilled with a diamond bit, cleaned, and assembled into a lamp. The socket is a push-through style socket. I typically sell them online without shades, as this is usually a personal choice. I do have some "neutral" colored shades that can be included in a purchase if one so desires.
If you are looking for a great addition to your bar or man cave, these bottle bar lamps make great decor, and are a great conversation piece.
I stock many different bottles, so if you have a particular brand of liquor or wine that you would like to have made into a lamp, contact me, and I will let you know if I have it. I also do custom work, so if you want, you can ship your bottle to me, and I will make it into a lamp for you.
I have had customers ask me about shades, and bulbs. Here is what is recommended:
-Use a lamp shade for your bottle lamp that is only an "open top/open bottom type. It should be a Slip UNO style.
