I love having a small lamp on the bathroom counter for soft lighting, but I don’t love the long leftover cord look.
I got an idea to remove the black felt on the bottom and store some of the cord inside the lamp. I removed the felt on the bottom of my white ceramic lamp, but there was no space. I grabbed another small silver lamp I have and eureeka! — unused space on the bottom. So I pulled the cord through to the length I wanted and wrapped the excess inside the lamp, taped it, and put the felt back. No more ugly cord on the counter! The little things make me happy.
