Repurposed Children's Book Toy LampJune 25th, 2014 in member junk
I'm not the first to repurpose books to make a lamp, but I've always wanted to make one. I've got tons of vintage children's books so I took some that have seen more "action" over the years to make this one. I also threw in a vintage tin spin top toy and a retro aluminum party tumbler. The wood base was custom painted and distressed in deep blue. I also routed out a tunnel to the center to run the cord out so the whole piece would sit flush.
