I had an old thermal Coffee carafe that had seen it's last pot of coffee. Not wanting to throw it all away, I removed the glass thermos and made a lamp out of it. the Base is from some brass urn lamps I turned into planters, so I got to reuse parts that I saved. Not sure about that shade though... maybe need to get my creative freak on about that one.
