This is my second set of Kirby lamps I designed for my bedroom. The first set in picture 2 was given to my grandsons. I think they turned out nicely if I do say so myself. Motion activated and can be dimmed.

Pictured with my beloved dog Abby.

Those dual Sanitronic sconces look swell, Jim. Nice work!

I went to Lowe's today to buy another light strip as a backup come to find out they no longer carry them. What I did find was a set of battery powered lights that work with a remote control.

what was nice is they came in a set of two. They were easy to swap out with the other lights and fit easily in the nozzle. They have two different light settings, "Cool" and "warm" and they can be dimmed they can also be put on a timer of 1m 5m 15m or 30m.

I think they look much better without the unsightly cord, and a nice little upgrade. Thanks again for the nice comments and feedback.

If you did a royal metal upright lamp they have the scent trays above the nozzle you could put scentsay or oils in
You could paint trim and make blue trimmed lamp etc.
Pretty sweet and nice job on the cutout board must be fairly skilled at woodworking.
