Random Silver Lamp

Before.  Found this for a quarter at a garage sale once.  Might want it someday.... yup, about 4 years later, hey let's do something with that lamp, Laura!  I got some ideas from this girl that had a booth next to our church's at the Hot Air Jubilee this year.  She glued toys on a lamp and spray painted the whole thing.  Which got me thinking... we could do that with other things!  Like.........

these medicine caps from the drugs at the hospital Laura works at were the perfect thing.  Different sizes, FREE, and plentiful!!  Perfect.

Laura went to town hot gluing them on the lamp.  Of course, she couldn't just stick with the drug caps and rummaged through my random collection of buttons and such.  Much to her chagrin, I made her take a few off, cuz I couldn't bare the thought of parting with them in such a way!  Yes, I a slight hoarder. 

Once they were all glued on, we took it out to the barn and spray painted the whole shabang silver.  I think this is the beginning of many such creations!!  Might try a lamp shade next.... with.... ???  Wait and see.


  1. I saw that ladies booth too:P my first reaction wasn't to go and try it myself though!

  2. OK I have to admit, I wondered before I scrolled down, all those med caps glued on, WHAT?? All those colors, NOO!! But now I have to say I like the finished product, kind of fun, and funky, yet almost antiquey, Good Job Kams!!

  3. That is so cool! The possibilities are endless!
