Lamp Revamp Series

6:00:00 AM

Welcome to a 5 part series:  
"What can be done with an old lamp!"

Picture if you will, a lamp found on the side of the road.

A very large lamp... 4 feet high, very ornate 
and weighing about 50 lbs...
(It must have come from someone's castle!)

It was brought home not by me this time, 
but by my dumpster diving daughter... 


Now even I had second thoughts about this one...

It sat in the garage for a very long time....
Until...

I couldn't help myself any longer...
I had to do something with it...

Look at all this good stuff!

Now my creative mind was racing....
I was thinking candle holder....

I even thought these pieces would make some very cool hooks...
 (maybe even a whole line of them)

I'm even thinking planter...
(maybe even a little bright colored spray paint????)
