Look What I Made!!!!

I just wanted to pop on here and share with you one of the many projects I've been working on.  I'm really excited with how this turned out!  I have always loved this lamp that is made by Carriage House Lighting and Tinware, based in Troy, Ohio. (They don't have it featured on their website)  They sell it for $400.00, which is way more than what I wanted to spend!  lol  So, as usual, this little mind got to working on how I can make my own!  It was a little labor intensive and took a few days to make because I had to assemble and glue things in stages.  But do you know what the exciting part is?!! It only cost me about $45.00 in material!!  (Make that $49.00.....the light bulbs cost me $4.00!  lol)  Woo Hoo!!!  I think it turned out pretty darn good, if you ask me!!

So......do you want to see it?

Here it is half way done:




And here it is all done!


Like I said, I'm really excited with how this turned out!  I have another light in the works and will share it with you when I get it done.   I have some other projects that I've been working on.  Some are done, but go with other projects that aren't done yet, so I'm waiting until everything is complete before I post pictures. 

I've started rug hooking and will, hopefully, finish up a project in a couple of days. I'll share that with you along with a very helpful tool that I purchased that is wonderful to cut wool with!




Until Next Time. . . . Kris

  7. My Goodness Kris. Girl you got SKILLLZZZZ! Love your lamp; looks awesome. The patina is to die for.

    Sooooo looking foward to seeing the other projects you're working on; especially the Hookin' project. I'm really curious to find out what tool this is you've discovered for cutting wool. I'm interested in trying my hand at this too, but I'm so afraid. Don't know how to cut(don't have a cutter) and choosing shades of wool. :) Hope your tips help push me into doing it.
