Girls Just Wanna Have Fun- Contributor ChallengeMay 23rd, 2009 in projects
"YEAH YEAH" us "GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN" and making these projects fit right into that motto. I worked "ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT", "TIME AFTERE TIME" too bad there was no "WITNESS". OK so none of this is true, except for the FUN part. I just wanted to play with the titles to the songs on my inspiration LP by "Cyndi Lauper'. Anyway I found an old and quite ugly lamp at the Goodwill and liked the way the brass parts were adjustable, but the marble base wasn't so good. I used two 78 LP's with the holes enlarged to fit the threaded rod from the lamp and stacked them on the afore-mentioned (ugly) marble base and added a brass bed post finial, that I drilled a hole in, to add a little more height to the overall lamp. I used Gorrilla Super Glue to attach the drawer pulls as feet, found a lampshade that fit, and there you go.
My other project was done to utilize the 78's that were sent to me and came in pieces...those 78's are brittle! So when opening the box I thought "well I guess I'll be making a mosaic"...which I did. I used the top off of an old nightstand that had fallen apart, glued the pieces on the bottom, cut glass to fit, and have it sitting on top of a black plant stand. I could always add handles and use it as a serving tray. who knew that old LP's could come in so handy?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
