Now let's get started...This is one of my favorite projects that I did awhile back when I first started blogging. I had some lamps that I found on the side of a dumpster. Didn't know that they didn't work when I picked them up..but they didn't. So they sat around my house for a few years. Then I had an aha! moment and repurposed them into some candlesticks.
Well, this current lamp was going to be repurposed into a table like a I did in this post awhile back, but then I realized that it wasn't sturdy enough to become a table. So....it too became a candlestick :)
This is a super simple project.
First, all you need to do is take out all it's lamp parts. The cord, the lightbulb holder, the lampshade (or course) and lampshade holder.
Now get a plate, hot glue it onto the lamp base.
Boom! There you have a candlestick. A super large candlestick for just a couple of dollars. Or free, if you happen to have an old lamp hanging around....or found one in the dumpster...don't worry, I'm not going to judge how you got it :)
I love large candlesticks but can never find them in a price range I would be willing to pay, so this is the perfect solution :)
