Do you have mismatched china, or a teapot without a lid? Why not make a lamp? I saw an article on Pinterest on how to rewire a thrift store lamp, and thought I would give it a shot. I went to Lowe’s and bought a lamp kit, about $8.00, and a lampshade at Target for about $8.00. I drilled a hole through 2 plates, a teacup, bowl and a teapot, and wired the lamp.
It is really simple to wire a lamp, the only hard part was securing it to the cup. When I glued the china parts together, I covered the top of the cup with a lid of a bell jar, to secure the top pf the lamp. My first few lamps are a bit wobbly on top, but I have improved, and have 2 to make for gifts.
My favorite part of making lamps is how creative you can be.
The finished product sits on my bedside table, where it adds a cheerful touch to the room.
