A Two-Fer!!!

Out of a thrift store candlestick and what I assume was a planter, I made two things-

A Tea light holder

A desk lamp.

I drilled a hole on the bottom of the planter for a lamp shade adapter, attached said adaptor, and decided it would look better if I drilled a series of holes around it. And I think it does! Makes a great little lamp for my desk in the mess room, helps me see the bills when I pay them (downside).

VERY impressive! That's quite an elegant lamp.
I would never have thought to separate the candlestick like that. I'll have to start looking at things with my eyes open - duh!
