That little corner just gets a bit dark. Now, somewhere (where? I just don't remember!) I had seen a small lamp made from a coffee pot. Wouldn't that be cute?
Wait! Hiding in the garage! Just the thing in our camping equipment! A teensy old aluminum coffeepot!
BTW, it was missing some vitals innards and bits....so it was absolutely useless for camping or anything involved in making coffee...
Which needed some sanding and painting......
Here's the bottom of the coffee pot with a hole drilled in the middle (by Dearest Husband)
and the gold stem painted in silver:
And here's the base painted red---plus some more parts from
that old lamp....it's starting to look like a lamp!
Putting the wiring back together:
And look! A lamp!
