#4 Lamp to Crate Handle

5:25:00 AM

Lamp Project #4

Wooden Crate Handle

Once again... After taking apart a very large ornate lamp that was found by the side of the road....

I used pieces of the lamp for this project...

I used 2 of the arms that held the light bulbs...

I screwed them together using a dowel in the center...

I spray painted the handle black and 
distressed the paint...

I made a wooden crate from some reclaimed wood and attached the handle to the crate with eye screws...

A fancy handle for a simple distressed crate...
