Back in February I found these tall glass candle holders that I just loved...well I put them on my mantle. The story doesn't end there. My mantle was not secured to the wall and my 6-year-old hung on it...and yep you guessed, they fell to the ground and broke.
I wasn't mad because it was an accident and it was my fault for putting them there. After cleaning up the mess I put them into the trash. I went to bed, and laid there thinking what beautiful lamps the glass would make. I jumped out of bed and "dumpster dived" in my own trash can.
About three weeks ago my husband picked me up a drill-bit so I could make a hole in the top and today I purchased a lamp kit from Lowe's. This it what the first lamp looks like today.
In a few weeks (or months) when I finish the next lamp, I will have to find some cute shades for them.
Happy Memorial Day!
