How to Make a Tripod Floor Lamp



Found on the side of the road this week...



Check out that tall thing in the back...
it's an old wooden tripod!


I'm psyched! Because I want to make one of these lamps...

$349.00

And here's how I'm going to do it for $13.00...

First you need a light kit...
(had one... free)


Take it apart and thread it through the hole at the top of the tripod... add a light bulb ($1.00)...


Put the wires back together and make sure it works...


Good it did!


Next, I need a shade...
Got this one at Target ($12.00)...


Did you notice that shelf in the middle?



Couldn't let that just sit there with nothing on it!


I think it turned out really great! 
Well worth the $336.00 savings!
