Please see the image below. I'm trying to convert my IKEA NYFORS floor lamp into a reading light, by covering the top with an Aluminium pie plate.
Will this be a fire or electrical hazard? Does anyone foresee any dangers or risks?
As I have 3 of these floor lamps in my attic, I don't want to waste money buying a reading light. I'm unemployed because of COVID.
