I found an old rusted metal base that used to be part of a windmill.
It was just begging to become a great floor lamp.
I picked up a 10 dollar lamp kit which has instructions on the back (and its EASY!)
Now I have a wonderful rusted white industrial floor lamp.
It all cost less than $25 ($12 for the windmill base, $10 for the lamp kit and I had the shade).

I found a great old base to a windmill and in less than 5 minutes turned it into a wonderful industrial floor lamp.
