Ready for 3rd Gear?

Pin It



K
ick those lamps into third gear! Here is a third masterpiece of a lamp made by RJNJ (my junking hubby) from rescued auto parts. The first lamp has a home in our entry. The second lamp was a gift to his gear-head buddy. This one? Sold at the Prize show in October. Can't wait to see what fourth gear looks like!



STEP 1.
Start with a foundation of uber-cool gear-like auto parts.












STEP 2.
Using a lighting kit, add a rod and a few more gear-like bits & bobs (not the technical terminology). Add some shine and shimmer with a glass hurricane surround.










STEP 3.
Put the cherry on top with a gorgeous lamp shade. Voila!














STEP 4.
The ambience? Exquisite!!

  3. Awesome! I love it! I should have requested the old parts from my major car repair this past week, huh? I've never seen a transmission. Have you? It sounds like a big part, much too large for a lamp. I wonder what I could have done with it? haha

    Thanks for the votes! You're so good to me! ;)

    Enjoy the weekend!

  5. This is my favorite, yet! It makes the gears even more of a feature.

  6. Ohhh I'm loving the hurricane portion on this one! So creative! There just aren't enough hours in the day for me to do all the things I want to. (pout!)

    Love it! Thanks for linking up a 'metal' (LOVE!!) project. :)
