Trash to Treasure Vintage Lamps in a new Light

Look at these fun bowls made from vintage lamp parts that are currently at The Red Shed. Perfect for potpourri or Christmas sweets.

Here is another one. I love the alternate uses for the hobnail lamp bases.

This is a fun re-do with a full size stand up lamp turned candelabra. This candle lamp has a rod & finial on the top that pulls up a platform to change and light the candle. It also has a great base.

Love this one made from a Lovers Wedding candelabra. Filled with candles, how fun would this be on your porch for a dinner party.

These are 50s vintage light globes turned upside down and filled with twinkle lights. They look fabulous in a window!

Ok, these have nothing to do with lamp parts, but they are a great Trash to Treasure. Found these white lace plates at a garage sale. Painted and added the letters.

The fun part is the letters are attached with velcro....

A couple more letters are included, and by changing a couple of the letters, the plates can be used year round.
