"Soilax Bucket" Tool Box LampJanuary 17th, 2009 in blog, member junk
Believe it or not they still make this cleanser; I've seen it at the paint store. One of my “theme lamps” that is also functional. It’s like having a live-in janitor. The “Soilax Bucket” is dated 1949 and was found at a yard sale.
I constructed the base from wood to function as a tool box and painted the graphics to match the bucket. Then added all the necessary janitorial paraphernalia…keys, whisk broom, etc. Casters on the base allow it to roll about 10 feet. Roll it 11 feet and you pull the plug out of the wall...so it has its limits. The remainder of the components are galvanized pipe, metal bands, vintage door pulls and the usual workshop junk.
