1  Vintage Bicycle Basket Wall Sconce in CHALLENGE 27 ENTRIES by dosergirl on: May 03, 2008 09:16:48 AM
I'm really excited about this even though there are so many really great lights in the challenge already. I have never posted anything but this project inspired me to make something with the things i had on hand (ie in the stacks and stacks of things that i will someday craft into something Smiley)




I bought this lamp a few months ago at a thrift store for $1
i figured i could just recover it but whenever i did, i didn't seem to like it
how i bought it...



yesterday i was inspired. I didn't take any during pictures but it really took about 10 minutes.

i took the socket and cord out of the original metal frame lamp, this would work with any light with a cord.

i put the light in the center of the basket and surrounded it with sea shell necklaces i had around, so that it stood upright in the middle. I put the cord through the holes in the back of the basket where you would strap it onto a bicycle.

then i decorated the inside with things i would probably have in the basket if it was on my bike....the flowers are actually the first flowers my boyfriend gave me. the feather i found on the street.  and the heart just has no other home Smiley

anyway, here it is. a kind of wall sconce/shadow box and i love it. '

(i'm really sorry for the not great pics, my camera is acting a bit wonky)
