A brutalist DIY table lamp is an excellent craft to steer you into the new year, especially when buying one ready-made can be expensive. A brutalist lamp takes after the crude characteristics of brutalist architecture verging on sculptural.

A dark and broody table lamp gives a rustic essence to your decor and a personal touch, because it's a DIY. You'll need some copper sheeting, hammered texture spray paint in brown or black, wood paste, all-in-one polyurethane wood stain and finish, a bone folder, scissors, craft knife, cutting mat and a basic cord set or table lamp.

The instructions are easy and detailed, allowing you to create this table lamp all on your own or even as a couple's project. The result is a golden metallic lampshade that can be used as a planter as well.
