Update a Lamp to Candlestick

How to turn a lamp into a candlestick! 

Once again the ornate lamp found on the side of the road.

and the millions of fabulous pieces I ended up with when I took it apart.

Today I turned some of them into a beautiful silver candlestick.

I stacked all the little pieces onto the long pole from the middle of the lamp. 

I screwed it together at the top and under the base.

Every piece is secure, with no glue.

All it needed was a little metallic spray paint!

This is my second project from that old, ugly lamp.

Doesn't that just make you want to think
twice about an old ugly lamp...

  4. Gorgeous! Got any pieces left? I think you should post a picture of your leftovers when you think you'e exhausted the use of the various pieces and let us see if we can suggest anything for them, although I'm sure you're on a mission to use every bit.
