    DIY cable light with plug socket 8th May 18 at 12:59 PM
    Hiya,

    I want to make some bedside lamps that are similar to this:
    https://sugarandcloth.com/diy-metallic-pendant-sconce/

    Has anyone else done this before? I want them to have plugs on the end and a switch halfway down the cable if possible.

    Is this a project that can be done by a a novice? Want to get both done for less than 25 if possible as our bedroom budget is quickly diminishing!

    Thanks

    But if you have to ask, then maybe wiring it up isn't for you? I'm sure if you ask around you'll find someone locally who could wire it up for you?

  • Lovely package on #newsnight just now about Brexit hitchhiking, livened up what has been not the most exciting show.

  • Is this is a serious tweet or a joke? Why did I mention he was a cyclist - because he was a cyclist. Eh? https://t.co/F1SP7UJZkH

  • How awful Mark. This is why those people who take risks on the road, have to realise while they think they're gamb? https://t.co/berU23vQOU
