Reuse & Repurpose: Music to my Eyes

Reading by the light of the there's a far-flung concept that the creator of this lamp realized by illuminating an old horn.

My decorator friends swear that you can turn anything into a lamp, and this find at the Allemany Flea Market in San Francisco demonstrates just that.

What have you turned into a lamp?

The Elegant Thrifter

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!


  1. You are so right. I have seen lamps made from tons of different things. Some of them reall weird. I guess it's in the eye of the beholder. Hugs, Marty

  2. I have turned a large Baroque candle holder into a lamp.

    I would adorn the lampshade with some cool beads and possibly rust or verdigris the trumpet. Am I egocentric? Aren't all artists?

    Always colorful
