Lamp to Crate Handle

How to make a repurposed 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.
