Shhhh...don't tell anyone, but I think my repurposing is contagious. Look at the lamps my husband made out of various vintage findings garage findings. He wired them up, drilled holes and they are all working. I saw one at a specialty cottage store for sale for $345.00. The lamps cost us about $15.98 each to make... thanks to his free labor and my junking. We're planning on taking all of our "projects" to a swap meet this spring. I'll let you know when and where and I'll keep you posted on my ongoing projects.
