FINALLY FIGURED OUT WHAT TO DO WITH MY ANTIQUE X-MAS TREE STAND.....TOOK ME AWHILE!  I THOUGHT ABOUT A FLOOR LAMP BUT YOU WOULD'NT NOTICE THE STAND THAT MUCH. SO MADE A TABLE LAMP INSTEAD.  JUST USED A LAMP KIT AND ASSEMBLED THE LAMP, THEN ALL I DID WAS STICK IT IN THE BASE AND TIGHTENED THE THREE SCREWS!  I CAN EASILY TAKE IT OUT IF I WANT TO USE THE STAND FOR SOMETHING ELSE.


Pattern or design used: My own design
