Solar Lamp Project

20140520-225900.jpg

Here is K.F’s craft project.
The solar table lamp.

Step 1:
Buy an old lamp but make sure it is a heavy one.
K.F. Nabbed this lamp for under $5 from a thrift shop.

Step 2:
Cut the cord off the lamp and spray paint the base.
It is advisable to give the base a quick sand and use a good exterior paint like Tremclad.

Step 3:
Take the heads off two garden solar lights and wire them to the base.

Step 4:
Put a lamp shade on and place in a sunny location.
K.F. mentioned she is going to purchase a much nicer looking shade to clean up the look. I suggested a cream one with a blue bird on it that is sold at Target.

I think this is a great project and K.F. did a fabulous job!
