On an impulse Nick and I went on a little road trip to acquire the perfect wine bottle to turn into a lamp. The Pink Floyd – The Dark Side of the Moon Cabernet Sauvignon bottle was waiting for us at a specialty store 60 miles away. Bringing the bottle home, we were more than excited to give it a try. So, our first step was to empty the bottle. Eager as we were, we polished her off the same evening. :)

The next day Nick took the newly empty bottle into the basement and began the lamp making process. The wine is so good, we didn’t even end up with a headache the next day.
With our drill press the hole was created in less than a minute. Nick inserted 50 mini LED lights along with a main cord to run the actual lamp part. A separate on/off switch was added to run the LED lights without the light bulb having to be on. The switch also is nice to have so you don’t have to unplug the lamp when not in use.
Once the lamp kit was assembled, Nick and I hooked up and made our way to find a lamp shade. Sticking with the one-of-a-kind Rock’n Roll mythology theme, we went with a black custom made shade. We attached beads along the bottom of the lamp shade and added glow in the dark stars.
The finished Pink Floyd Bottle Lamp exceeded our expectations.
This bottle has been sold!
The soft glow from the lamp shade didn’t off set the lights that illuminate the inside of the bottle, and the beads are the perfect finishing touch.
Even after the lamp is turned off, the afterglow of the stars adds a unique touch to this distinct wine bottle lamp.
