This upcycled lamp was a blast to make. The vintage minnow bucket on top really sets things off with the nice graphic in red on the side. I modified an old aluminum commercial strainer and a copper sauce pan as the lamp body with vintage garden faucet handles/valves on top and a top to a chopped candy dish as the bottom. The base is an old lid to a pot. A bicycle seat spring compliments the post.
