Publish date:

Both huge Star Wars fans, Lylelo and her partner recently spotted the IKEA PS 2014 lamp and thought that it looks a lot like a Death Star, so decided to turn it into one!

Normally a plain white lamp they set about transforming the light into the Death Star, using careful masking and painting to create its famous maze like surface and the results are pretty damn awesome. As it turns out, the sci-fi fans were right as the lamp really does look impressive, especially when it's turned on. If you want to find out how to make your own then head here.
