How to make ' Desk lamp'
As many of you inquired about how I prepared the desk lamp which I used in my dollhouse; through this article, I make an effort to explain how I prepared desk lamp (for desk lamp and complete dollhouse, please refer my last article on my dollhouse titled, 'Love is in the Air').  However, sorry if you find this article incomplete. But I hope this does some help.

Here in Japan, you can easily get 'plastic model parts (from plastic model shop)' using which desired object can be prepared. I prepared desk lamp using the plastic model parts for 'Gundam'. 'Gundam' is very popular robot in Japan.

Below are the steps for preparing 'Desk Lamp' from plastic model parts
- Choose parts of suitable size for 'Lamp shade'.
- Choose right size of plastic strips to use as 'Arms of lamp'.
- Assemble the parts using glue.
- Finally do spray paint.

As you can see from above steps, making desk lamp is not that difficult but you need to get those plastic parts. I hope you find simlar 'plastic model parts' in your country.


  1. I love your lamp! What kind of parts are those and what were they for? What kind of kit did they come in? I would never be able to find anything like them unless I knew that. ;-)

  2. Thanks for sharing how to make the lamp.
    Best wishes

    Sorry it is Japanese only, but you will see what gundam robot is. The parts I used are for 'kit bashing' gundam plastic model. We just call it kit bashing parts in Japanese. Hope you will find simliar parts in your country.
