My hope chest has a curvy figure… I love it, but lamps fall off.
I needed to provide a stable surface for a lamp and reading materials
but the chest is a beautiful heirloom, and I really did not want to drill holes in it.
The super-easy solution is a pair of 1x2s painted black and screwed to a sheet of Plexiglas (drill holes slightly larger than the screws through the Plexiglas first).
DIY Tip: use a small propane torch (I have one for cooking) gently on the edges of the Plexiglas for a smooth glass-like finish.
The kids mess with it and it slides around, so I think I have a idea to fix that… coming soon!
There’s no reason not to use something you love (even if it takes a little adaptation), right?
