DIY-wooden lamps

available at Target for $49.99 (without shade):

available in your backyard for less than $20 (with shade)




So, they're not exactly alike, but I've seen the one at Target and it just looks way too fake. I found a dead tree in our woods. We cut it down, soaked the pieces with ant spray (ants love to live in dead wood apparently), and sprayed them with a sealant to bring out the color and give the wood a more durable outer covering since the wood was dead and chipping off pretty easily. Added a light kit and a shade and I now have two new bedside lamps for about the cost of one had I purchased them. Love the feeling after finishing a DIY project; especially if it saves you money!
