From Lamps to Jewelry Stands Recycle Reuse Reinvent

Reuse, Recycle, Reinvent is what I do!

This is my first lamp to jewelry stand project. The base of the lamp was pretty dirty and only had the light socket attached with frayed wiring. But, I'll tell you the price was right at a local thrift shop so I purchased it, thinking I would clean it up and rewire. It sat for several months before I began to take it apart. Once apart I was looking around my lamp parts and thought I'd try something different. I just started to stack - and this is what I made. Since it's my first one - it's never getting sold. It's mine.

This stand is made with lamp components from four different lamps. A 1920's cast iron base, a 1950's yellow glass sphere, a 1940's Gone with the wind brass hoop and a fleur-di-lis finial.

So, began my new adventure of lamps to jewelry stands.
