Light My Fire!February 7th, 2010 in member junk
I ran across this old gas space heater in someone's trash. All the cool lamps on Junkmarket have inspired us to do a lamp project, too. The ceramic heat radiant thingys look kinda gothic, don't ya think? All we've had to do is clean it up a bit (leaving the rusty parts as-is) and then I added a lamp kit. It took only one drilled hole to be able to use a leftover hollow rod from another old lamp and it all came together! Next, inspired by the old-sweaters-to-lampshades we've seen shared here, we thought it would be a great way to combine ideas later. This is our first lamp project but we have lots more junkola we can re-purpose as unusual lamps. We'll be putting this one in our shop so wish us luck!
