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...
