Broken lamp to candle stick!


As the picture indicates…I broke this small lamp. Accidentally, of course. It fell off of my daughter’s dresser. Not allowing much of anything that can reused go into the trash, this lamp was no exception. I broke the rest of the plastic around the part that holds the light bulb so I could save the cord for another project and removed the cord from the lamp by disconnecting it and pulling it out through the bottom. Next, I simply peeled off the felt from the bottom then unscrewed the base from the pole and glass bead parts. ¬†I took off the broken part and rearranged the parts to better suit my design. I didn’t use any other materials other than what already existed. This project probably took all of 5 mins! Lesson of the day: DON’T THROW ANYTHING AWAY. ūüôā REUSE UPCYCLE REPURPOSE ¬†ALL THAT JUNK


A globe repurpose

A globe repurpose

Inspired by my own blog post…Simply take a globe apart. Pull the globe out of the stand. Take a utility knife and cut the globe in half. It will usually be pretty easy to tell where it was put together in the first place. Be very careful, as this part will not be the easiest, unless your globe is just falling apart. It took quite a few times to go around before the globe came apart. Once it separated the rest was cake. I am leaving it up to my customer to decide the finishing touches. (The trim around the bottom). But easy pie you have to instant lamp shades. Or endless possibilities. See my previous blog for other ideas on just globes.

I must confess…

Hello…My name is Jessi and I’m a pickin’ junkie. I’ve gotten my husband hooked on the junk and my toddler is learning our trash too.¬†¬†

I will not pick today. I will not pick today. 

Must repurpose and refab EXISTING inventory. Hehe. 

I’ll need to repeat this ALL DAY.
