I like things that are old. This is why I actually prefer to shop second hand. Not only are things cheaper, they are usually so much more unique. Whenever I find something really cool at a Thrift Store I always wonder what stories this thing could tell.
Shopping second hand has led to me having very unique home decor. One of my favorite "unique" objects in my house is a lamp I made from an old bottle I bought second hand. This is an incredibly easy project. If you have a few simple supplies, you too can have a one-of-a-kind lamp.
Here's what you need:
Lamp kit (find these at Walmart, or any mart)
Simply drill a hole in the back, bottom of the bottle, so a cord can pass through. Then assemble your lamp according to the directions on the lamp kid. Add a shade, plug in and enjoy!
Sidenote: if anyone has figured out how to keep curious little boys from pulling things off shelves, let me know!
Thanks as always for being here!
