Comments about DIY BOTTLE LAMP KIT:

The holder for the bulb is cheap plastic and arrived broken.
On the good side my daughter loves the old fashion soda bottles and has a small collection, this is such a great way for a fun display.
I think the price is way more than the product is worth. But my daughter is keeping it.

          My teen stepson is really hard to shop for, but I thought he'd get a kick out of this and I was right. He's determined now to get just the right bottles to complete his vision for the lamp.

            Our 12-yr-old son loved this for Christmas. He collects (those that I don't chunk) glass bottles & needed to upgrade from his kiddie bedside lamp--perfect! Hard to find a gift that excites an adolescent boy...

              This lamp is perfect for the soda lover. You can drink the soda and then enjoy the artistic glass bottle the rest of the year or longer.

                Not so great with coke bottles

                By 

                from Austin

                      Comments about DIY BOTTLE LAMP KIT:

                      It works, and is easy to set up. I bought it with Christmas coke bottles in mind, and their shape is not ideal for this lamp. The curve of coke bottles makes them less than effective as a lamp shade. Coke bottles become narrow right where the top rings are supposed to support them, so they lean at different angles instead of standing straight. This leaves gaps with the bulb exposed. The bulb that came with the lamp is very bright, so the bottle gaps make for hot spots of light. That isn't great for a bedside treading lamp, my intended use.

                      Straight sided bottles might work better.

                        Comments about DIY BOTTLE LAMP KIT:

                        I saw this online and asked it for Christmas, and I was so happy to receieve it, though a little disappointed in the size and lack of bottles at first. However, I've actually come to like the size, and it's more fun finding your own bottles and getting to drink the goods before you put the bottles in. ;) The price is a little high in my opinion for just the lampstand and frame, but it works well. Dark bottles work better to achieve the lampshade effect. Make sure to wash out the bottles before putting them in, or you'll be getting soda drips onto the base and after awhile, bad smell to accompany it. Overall though, I absolutely love it. Very cool and original.

                          Very cool design and unique. A great conversation piece! You can change the bottles out to match decor if needed or use your favorite beverage bottles.

                            I bought this to help a beer bottle collecter who was running out of shelf room! I think it will be a great way to display his favorite bottles.
