Fun Lighting and a Giveaway!

The Easy Canvas Prints giveaway has ended! Check the Rafflecopter widget at the end of the post for the winner! Thanks to all who entered! :)

Ok, so, I have this thing for lights. I don't really know why, but I just do. I love cool industrial lamps and hanging lights and turning random objects into awesome lamps. It's fun, creative and unique. The possibilities are endless for light sources.
My husband rewired two lamps for me last weekend and it got me thinking about the lights we have transformed or found over the years.

First up is this chemistry beaker stand. I found the stand at one of my parents' rental houses, and the work lamp shade was a thrift store find. My husband buys super cheap, but fully functioning lamps from thrift shops to use for parts. Often times his way is much cheaper than buying lamp kits.
Nate also transformed tractor funnels into lights for our living room and I made the drop cloth cord covers.

This green metal work light was a thrift store find with a matching green cord.

I love it!!

This was an old spotlight rescued from the church where I work that Nate rewired.

I really, really love this industrial light I found at a thrift store last year that Nate also rewired.

And the best for last! I got this accordion brass lamp from a vendor friend. It will need a new cord, and I plan to use it in my studio! 

Don't forget to enter for your chance of winning an 11x14 canvas from Easy Canvas Prints with any photo of your choice. The quality is beautiful!
