I shared this Italian fruit lamp earlier on the blog and I had a tough time figuring out how to light the lamp without using electricity. We don’t have an outlet in our kitchen island for some reason as now it would be required to have one if you were building for code. I wish we had one!
Anyway, I thought about using a punk light but I couldn’t find one that I thought would work and I got a super huge one and laughed when I saw it was the size of my face. I tried looking up how to use a bulb without electricity and I found it! Also known as camping lights!! The bulbs to use to light a lamp without an outlet are these USB plug in charge and come in a warm white and can hang off the top of the lamp shade so it looks like a lightbulb!
And then we got this – tada – it’s beautiful!!
It looks real good, like real. The USB bulb lasts for hours and you have two of them so you can switch them, but they also are dimmable and have a timer so it can turn off within a few hours. I wish it could come on at the same time every day but it doesn’t. The bulbs also come with a remote.
Anyway I thought I’d share! I tucked the cords under the lazy susan on our kitchen island. I didn’t want to cut the cord of the lamp because you never know, I might move it.
So here’s a great way to light up your lamps outside, inside, now you can say yes to all the lamps!
Diana Elizabeth has a crazy lamp collection, they aren’t weird lamps there are just a TON so it’s crazy. Maybe she’ll take a picture of them all and share.
