Years ago, my daughter said that if something didn't move, I'd make a lamp out of it. Canning jars (filled with beach glass, thread spools, etc.), unusual vessels, old jugs...they all got electrified. My favorite lamp transformation was a white porcelain four part coffee pot. I can't remember how I came to own it, but the the little knob on the lid of the piece had been broken off. I drilled and drilled, trying to break through the lid and finally had to hand it over to my dad to complete. I know I still have the lamp--packed away in the basement, no doubt, but when I came across this picture in Country Living it made me think about my lamp.
I have a collection of unusable teapots...hairline cracks or assorted other boo boos...so I think I'm going to try and cobble a new lamp together for the sun porch. Hope my drill skills have improved!
