Lamp Turned Candle Holder

Last year after Christmas I ran
across a really pretty lamp
at Fred's. I walked away
a couple of times but I
kept going back. I had
plans for that lamp.

The socket part where you
put the bulb was broken so
it was marked down.



 Originally $24.99 and I
got it for $5.00. My friend
Gail and My Repurposed Life
would be proud of my $5.00 buy!

Now according to the price
tag I would have paid even
more then $24.99 for it some
where else.



I cut the cord!!
And decided I was not going
to try and fix the socket
instead I had a plan to make
it a beautiful candleholder
with my brother Ray's house
in mind.

But I had to look for a whole year
for the right globe to attach to it.
Last weekend I visited the
Rehab Store and found what
I thought would work great.



And here is the lamp.



Now it really glows.


Finished product.


Love the detail.
Hope my brother and sis in law
like it.

Just ignore the dust on it!


Thanks for stopping in,

Oh my word. That is AMAZING!!! Perfect pairing, and I love how you take something that others would throw away and turn it into something beautiful and useful. Kind of like God does with us....
