Modern desk lamp – A wall-mounted desk lamp is a good way to illuminate your work space without cluttering up valuable space on the desktop. After you have set up your computer, Rolodex, telephone and coffee, there is often little room left for a modern desk lamp. Fortunately, you can hang a wall-mounted desk lamp on any type of wall, even if your desk lamp is quite heavy. With the right tools and preparation, you can hang a wall-mounted table lamp in just minutes.
Place the modern desk lamp on the wall above the desk. Connect the lamp and turn it on before hanging it, and move it around on the wall over your desk until you find the hanging position that will provide the best lighting for your desktop. Mark the mounting points for the lamp with a pencil. Drive a thin wire nail into one of the points. If the nail into the wall easily, you can mount your lamp with toggle bolts. If the nail does not penetrate the wall, you should mount your lamp with expansion anchors.
Mount your modern desk lamp with toggle bolts by drilling a hole large enough to accommodate a toggle bolt and closed toggle at each mounting point. Insert the toggle bolts of the lamp mounting plate, and wooden toggles onto the bolts behind the mounting plate so that the tips of the closed toggle point toward the head of the bolt. Mount your lamp with expansion anchors by drilling a hole with a masonry bit at each mounting point.
