UPYCYCLED MINNOW BUCKET SHADE w/ COPPER GARDEN STRAINER LAMP:
Before I start, I wanted to let you know that all my "found object" creations are custom pieces. There will never be another piece exactly like it because my found parts dictate what the end result will be. I try to use all "found" parts in hopes to recycle items and extend their life and keep them away from landfills. I guess you could call them "green creations."
This upcycled lamp was a blast to make. The vintage minnow bucket on top really sets things off with the nice graphic in red on the side. I modified an old aluminum commercial strainer and a copper sauce pan as the lamp body with vintage garden faucet handles/valves on top and a top to a chopped candy dish as the bottom. The base is an old lid to a pot. A bicycle seat spring compliments the post.
Here are the measurements...
Height: 26"; Width (side to side): 9.5"; Depth: 9.5".
***I INSIST on the customer using either a CFL bulb (60 watt max) or an LED bulb in my custom lamps. Standard incandescent bulbs make the fixtures unnecessarily hot and the new, alternate bulbs are better for the environment and your electric bill.
All of my creations are carefully and securely packaged. I ship exclusively with FedEx because I've found them to be the safest form of shipping and provide the best handling and care of my items. I also provide a FedEx tracking number upon shipping your item(s). If actual shipping seems a little higher, it's because I use slightly larger boxes to make sure your one-of-a-kind item arrives safely to you and is packed appropriately. I offer FREE INSURANCE that is including in the shipping and handling price.
A lot of time and love went into each one of my pieces. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.
