Star Light

So what can you get for a $1.25?  Well I got a pretty cool lamp.  I found this lamp for a buck at a garage sale.  The shade was banged up and scorched but that was OK since I found this strainer a week before for a quarter.

I knew the strainer would make a cool lamp shade so I had hubby remove the feet and handles, then drill out the center of the top star.  All I did was screw on the finial and voila...

I couldn't capture the fun star lights this puts off but it is pretty cool.  Best thing is that I just found another strainer just like it this weekend, had to pay a whole $.50 for this one - oh well.

  1. Thank you for sharing this idea on Funky Junk! It was the inspiration I needed for the same colander I have that's missing a foot & another that is badly bent. I like seeing one that's finished & knowing that it looks very good.
