Man Cave Monday : Upcycled Deleon Bottle Table Lamp

When I think of home DIY projects for men, I normally think of some outdoor project or home repair that requires a trip to Home Depot. This week, my brother and new men’s decor contributor, Paul Anthony, completely changed my mind with his Upcycled Deleon Tequila Bottle Table Lamp. Made from a Deleon Tequila bottle and an old IKEA Alang Lamp, this stylish and masculine lamp is sure to light up even the darkest man cave. ( excuse my bad jokes lol ) Check out how he created this lamp below. For more men’s decor tips check back twice a month for a new “Man Cave Monday” post.
