Modern Wall Lights

Modern Wall Lights

These decorative wall mounted lamps hang on simple wooden consoles. The eye-catcher: the nostalgic carbon filament LED bulbs. The wall light fixture is easily mounted to the wall with an adhesive screw – and without using a drill.

2 black wooden wall consoles 2 x lamp sockets with textile cables 2 x LED filament lamps Small handsaw Black felt-tip pen Pencil tesa® Double-sided Adhesive Tape Transparent 4 x tesa® Rectangular Adhesive Screw (2.5 kg)

This is how we do it:

Step 1
01

Collect all items and let's start!

Step 2
02

Saw a notch into the front outer edge of each console using the handsaw (so that the lamp cable will not slip away later!).

 

Step 3
03

Paint the notched area black using the felt-tip pen.

 

Step 4
04

Apply a strip of double-sided adhesive tape on each upper part of the consoles.

 

Step 5
05

Remove the protective film before hanging the console.

 

Step 6
06

Once the console hangs on the wall, the cable is placed loosely across the upper trim and fixed at the top with the tape.

 

Step 7
07

Hold the console to the desired position on the wall and mark the pre-drilled holes with a pencil. Mount the adhesive screw on the marked spot according to the instructions on the package. Then place the console on the adhesive screws – which you’ve allowed to dry overnight – and secure it with the nuts.

 

Step 8
08

Wrap the electric cord around the upper console ledge as described in step 5 and fix it using the tape. Screw in the light bulb.
