Now you too can make yourself the nerdiest Atari lamp ever

The seriously talented crafty gamer types are out there, as our faithful community member Welkstar has proven with his mad skills (not to mention all the other incredible artists the Dtoid community is lucky to feature). If you happen to be one of these, you just might be interested in this new how-to feature over at Instructables that shows you how to build your own Atari-inspired table lamp.

The artist created the base using fiberboard and decorated his lampshade with pics from atariage.com. I have to say that while I am not sure I would feature a piece like this anywhere but in my gaming room, it is still a hell of a cool idea (not to mention a conversation piece).

What’s the coolest gaming-related thing you’ve ever created?
