I made this Orange Globe Night Light after finding a funky orange lamp at a secondhand store. I decided the most interesting part of the lamp was the base. An orange ribbed glass ball was just begging to be lit from within.
First I disassembled the entire lamp and cleaned all of the pieces. I bought a new metal finial and washer (with rubber washer underneath) for the top of the ball. Inside, I ran a string of white holiday lights. The ornate metal base already had a hole for the cord to exit, so it required no modifications. The result is a soft amber glow that’s super romantic and easy on the eyes. The finished piece reminds me of a crystal gazing ball. What do you think? Thanks for looking, and please visit my Etsy shop for more upcycled creations.
Great idea! Now how about this Sunglasses Chandelier?
