What To Do With Old Lamp Bases?


1. Chic Candlesticks

Shabby Chic Inspired Blog has shown us a great way to display our candles. Simply plan a visit to your local flea market, grab some old lamp bases, give them a nice coat of paint and your candlesticks are ready.

2. Picture or Card Holders

Sassy Trash Blog has shared a wonderful picture and card holder idea. If you happen to have an old lamp base, connect flowers made of thick metal wires to it and some really unique picture or card holder will be ready to be displayed in any part of your home where needed.
