How to Re-Wire a Lamp

If an old lamp needs a little tune up or a new find is in need of some TLC, we’ve got you covered. Sean Buino of Dad’s Handyman Service shows us how to rewire a lamp in the time it would take to watch just one episode of Weekend Workbench!


  • Lamp repair kit
  • Flat and Phillips screwdrivers
  • Locking and needle-nose pliers
  • Utility knife


  1. Remove felt
  2. Disassemble socket
  3. Pull out lamp cord
  4. Feed new wire
  5. Assemble new socket
  6. Attach cord to socket
  7. Tighten socket and replace felt

This easy project can be done in 30 minutes for just $11!
