I am SO SO SO SO SO SO SO very excited to show off the first lamp I've ever made! (Did I mention SO excited?)
Okay, so it all started when I was catching up on an episode of "Bones" online. At the very end of the episode as it was panning out it focused in on this lamp.......and I think my heart literally. stopped. beating.
They're called Edison Lamps. They cost $96 plus shipping.
In the meantime, during the hunt for the glass cylinder, I found a vintagey style bulb at the Restore for .25, and picked up a lamp kit at Walmart for $5.
I couldn't get a very good shot of the sanding/antiquing, but I tried. And do you know how hard it is to photograph a clear glass cylinder?!? Very hard. I must've taken about 50 pictures just to get these few.
So...$12.99 plus shipping came to about $18.00, plus $5 for the lamp kit, and .25 for the bulb. $23.25 versus $96 (plus shipping). Not too shabby in my book.
Are you as in love with it as I am? Let me know what you think. I'd love to hear from you.
