Imgurian Creates Classy Superhero Lamp Using Cheap Avengers Toys

Looks really awesome! I want one for my room!

If you are a superhero geek and you’re looking for a good lamp, finding something that suits your fancy can be quite a challenge. Besides, most of the available choices in the market are either too bland or too childish.

Imgur user downtwobane resolved that problem by creating one for herself.

Using a bunch of small Marvel figures, some super glue, and spraypaint, she managed to craft a DIY superhero lamp that’s just as exciting as it is classy.

According to her post on the said site, her sister got her some Avengers toys for her birthday. Instead of playing with the action figures though, she decided to do something a bit more creative with them.

“My sister bought me some cheap Avengers playset at the Disney Store for my Birthday,” downtwobane shared.

“I found a small lamp at the thrift store for $2.00 and super glued the figures to the lamp.”

After gluing the characters, she started giving the lamp a “quick primer coat.”

Applying gold spray paint afterwards gave the lamp a very elegant vibe.

Just wow! For a $15 project, this looks seriously impressive.

Now I feel like digging up my old toys so I can recycle them and make one like this. Or hey, this sounds like a great DIY gift idea too if you know someone who loves these spandex-clad characters.
