How to Repurpose a Lamp Series of Projects

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

5 projects from one found lamp www.homeroad.net

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 had to have come from a castle! 

It was brought home not by me this time, but by my dumpster diving daughter. Even I had second thoughts about repurposing this one!

The lamp sat in the garage for a very long time until I couldn't help myself any longer, I had to do something with it.

So I took it apart.

The more I unscrewed, the more excited I became.

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... though a pretty ugly one!
