I found some great "squirrel cage fans" and thought what can I do with them? A swag lamp! I think it looks industrial.

I've always wanted to try squirrel cage fans as waterwheels in a fountain. Water comes off one, then onto the next etc. I wish I had a hillside for the cascade effect.

Keep on Creating on... Beth Posted: 8:37 am on March 15th
