31  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Old Tripod Becomes A New Lamp! on: April 08, 2015 11:07:17 AM


I have had this wooden telescope tripod for nearly 15 years and for most of those years I have intended to make it into a floor lamp. I FINALLY DID!



I refinished the wood, added these chains to stabilize it, added a lamp kit and new shade.



To attach the lamp hardware to the tripod I used a black rubber stopper. I drilled a hole in it to receive the lamp hardware and voile!

Thank you! I didn't get to do them this year, because we didn't have the below freezing temps long enough that I thought it would be worth the effort. Next year, I hope!

HO.LY AMAZZEBALLZ!  This is... well, amazing!  GAH!  I know I could just spend so much time fawning and cooing and staring and arranging this.

What a fun way to showcase your home state! Good thing you don't live in one of those flat states, like North Dakota. Cheesy

I thought so... and so I copied!  Smiley  I guess If I were in a plains state, I could appliqued the back of the shirt...

There is someone nearby who makes and sells these and they're really well done and worth every penny, but cost more pennies than I care to spend on a sweatshirt.  So I made one for myself, on a lesser-quality sweatshirt (bought on clearance) just to try it out. If I want to make more for me or as gifts, I'll probably up the quality. I wouldn't try to sell them, though, I promise!



The cotton print that I made my Montana from is one I had in my stash!  And I already had the appropriate color thread, so this helps me in my quest to use stash first this year!



I wanted the edges to get a little frayed so I just straight stitched the applique onto the shirt, but it is backed with fusible interfacing, so hopefully it will only get a little frayed.

Annnnnnd and action shot... because Montana is a mountain state.  Shocked



I just want to add that I am glad that I don't live in a state with a really complicated border!
