How to Make a Candle Holder from Lamp Parts

   Broken vintage lamp parts are as good 
as gold to a repurposer like me!

How to Make a Candle Holder from Lamp Parts

When I ran across this pile of junked pieces I was excited to see what it could become.

I am adding Amazon affiliate links to my post so you can find the products I used for this project at no additional cost to you. 

Another project I made from this pile of parts was a black hammered pedestal planter and you can read all about it HERE.

Today I'm back to the HomeRight Paint Shelter for another go with the Rust-Oleum Matte Hammered Spray Paint.

I assembled a few pieces and attached them to a board temporarily for painting. 

I think at one time this piece held a glass globe of some kind.

When the paint was dry I removed the piece from the wood and attached it to an old door with a DIY mirror I have in my den. 

I dropped in a candle and this antique light fixture takes on a new life as a modern day candle holder.

This piece was super hard to photograph between the mirror and the window, I'm doing my best to give you a clear photo of the adjustable swing arm. 

The candle can be swung far away from the wreath and the door when lit then folded back when not in use.

I hope this project makes you think twice when you run across old lamp parts... What could they be next?
