How to Repaint a Lamp | Home Guides

Find visually interesting lamps at yard sales, thrift stores and even around your own house. The paint on the lamp may be chipped or simply outdated, making the lamp look a bit out of place in the context of your home’s decor. You can repaint a lamp without disassembling the structure. Before attempting to repaint the lamp, however, try to determine what it’s made of to make sure the new paint will adhere properly.

Remove the lampshade from the lamp, if in place, and set it aside. Wipe the lamp down with a damp rag to remove dust and dirt. Allow to dry completely.

Sand the paintable lamp surface gently with a sanding block or fine-grit sandpaper to create a rough surface for the paint to stick to. (Skip this step if the lamp is highly detailed or if it has an intentionally coarse surface.) Wipe it down with a

11 Best LED & UV Nail Lamps: Your Buyer’s Guide 2020

This rechargeable, cordless nail lamp from Hotrose frees you from the need to be near an outlet and has a long list of features with functionality in mind.  I love my current lamp but the idea of not having to worry if the cord will reach has me reconsidering my options.

The Hotrose Cordless takes two hours to fully charge and that will power the lamp for 12 hours of continuous use. To put that in real-world terms, if you used the longest function of 120 seconds per hand, the battery should last through 180 full manicures. That’s not bad at all. 

A unique feature this lamp has that you don’t see often is the ability to reverse the LED display. If you’re using it on yourself the display can face the front of the lamp. Then, to use it on someone else, you can hit the reverse button and

How to Refurbish a Table Lamp | Home Guides

Wait — before you toss out an old table lamp, revamp it with a fresh modern look. You’ll help the environment and save yourself the cost of a replacement. Get an outdated table lamp “up to speed” by giving the base and shade a design overhaul. In addition, check out the electrical features to make sure everything is operating properly.


When refurbishing a table lamp, inspect the electrical parts to be certain they are working correctly. For example, if a light bulb has burned out on your table lamp, trade it for an energy-efficient replacement. If the lamp is still not working, inspect the electrical cord or plug for damage. Or, the problem could be a defective socket that needs to be replaced. Always unplug the lamp before you attempt to repair it — simply turning off the lamp switch will not protect you from a potential electrical shock.

Coronavirus: What are the different types of COVID-19 tests? | UK News

As the government considers plans to carry out mass coronavirus testing, Sky News looks at the different types of tests available.

There are two different strands of testing – one is to find out if a person currently has COVID-19 and the other determines if they have had it and have built up antibodies.

PCR testing and antigen testing (often confused as the same kind of test) are different methods of testing, but both ascertain whether a person has COVID-19 at the time.

Ambition for ‘millions’ of tests per day

PCR testing

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing is currently the most common form of testing in the UK and is seen as fairly reliable.

A swab is used to collect an RNA sample (the nucleic acid that converts DNA into proteins) from the patient’s tonsils and inside their nose.

Hourglass-shaped table lamp helps you keep track of time using ambient-light!

There’s something very intuitive and interactive about the way the Time Machine Table Lamp is designed. Made to look like an hourglass, the lamp features a freely rotating shade with a central pivot and LEDs on both ends. Switch the lamp on and the LEDs on the upper half of the hourglass illuminate. Over time, the upper half of the hourglass dims down and the lower half begins illuminating, almost as if light particles are passing through the central channel, like grains of sand would.

The Time Machine Table Lamp was designed to help provide an ambient bedside aura of soft light, while allowing you to intuitively gauge time as it passes by. It takes around 60 minutes for the light to transfer from one half of the hourglass to the other, and a simple flip helps reset the entire procedure. It’s a fun-yet-useful way of timing your nightly activities
