We love receiving emails from our readers!
Especially when the email includes a picture of a finished bottle project. :)
Steve used a recycled Peter Mertes wine bottle for his DIY project. It’s a lovely blue bottle and happens to be one of our favorite German wines. Here is what Steve told us in his email:
“Hi Nick and Silke, Attached is a picture of my completed bottle lamp. I used a 1.5L bottle (Peter Mertes Riesling). The bottle is illuminated by a short 3/8” LED rope light with clear marbles used as reflective fill. A standard socket with a harp mount for the shade completes the top. Steve”
The LED robe light does a very nice job illuminating this bottle, don’t you think?
Thank you Steve for sending in your picture and allowing us to share it with our readers. We are certain your blue wine bottle lamp will be an inspiration to many.
