Description: Once you get the parts, this hack takes about 30 seconds. And you’ll need 1 reducing washer per lamp.
Essentially, I liked the Alang wall lamp but wanted the gray shade from the table lamp instead of the smaller white shade that is the only one available on the wall lamp. The issue is that the shades mount differently on each lamp and will wobble if you don’t secure them
1) Assemble both lamps as you normally except for the bulb.
2) Use a reducing washer found in the electrical section of your home renovation center. I went to Home Depot.
3) On the wall lamp, put the shade on the metal bracket.
4) Use the reducing washer between the shade metal ring and the standard plastic ring that came with the lamp. Replace bulb.
