My dad finally let me raid some of his treasures on the farm.  I took this old standing lamp and transformed it into a papertowel holder.  I'm not sure who to credit because I have seen this idea before... so thanks to whomever it was. 

I love the base of the lamp... all rusty and ornate!

monakent writes: LOVE this!!!! The minute I saw your first picture, I thought it would make a great paper towel holder. I wish my paper towel holder was as cool as yours. I would copy your idea, but I have no space to put it (darn) - counter space at my house is extremely limited. Enjoy!!! gailmarie Posted: 11:46 am on August 4th
