You may recall a post I did a few weeks back about Barn Light Electric and my love of their industrial and fun lighting.
I love to mess around with different things to make unique light fixtures
I also think I must have some sort of "handyman" gene because I also love to go to the hardware store...
my good friend Melaine from My Sweet Savannah does too,
check out her latest lamp creation at here
So here are the elements I used:
Take a vintage stove top toaster....about 10-20 dollars from the flea market...
Use a vintage colander, about 20 dollars,
or something with a "lampshade" like shape and combine the two with the necessary parts to make a lamp...
These take two small 40 watt bulbs that spread horizontally at the top of the fixture,
so this is soft diffused light.
Here they are sitting on a little dresser in a guest room.
The toasters are really very sturdy and a great shape for the bases
I really want to use these in my kitchen somewhere but I haven't found the right spot yet...
I like these!
what do you think?
