One If By Land

One If By Land
I bet you could go to your local thriftstore today and find heaps of abandoned brass light fixtures just like this one. You could take one home, gut its innards, give it a little spray paint therapy and ta da! You will have made yourself a great display lantern like Jessica from Running with Scissors
 I think it would look great with a big candle in there. Reminds me of Michelle’s similar fixture redos over at Three Men and a Lady. Simply amazing!

    What a great idea. Saw lots of these at the Habitat Store yesterday. May have to go back and pick one up.

    Cool. It is so inspiring to see how what would be thought of as junk turns into something still usable and modern. Thanks for that inspiration!!

    What a fantastic idea! We had one of these light fixtures in our home and when we replaced it through it right out. Amazing what you can do with brass!

    I’m always amazed at the creativity of people. I see one of these fixtures every time I visit a consignment shop. I would never have thought of this.
