Milk bottle lamps

Neale writes –

I’m always interested in reusing things as often as possible. I’ve been reusing things to make various things around the house – shelves, hooks, etc. which I should really get around to posting up here. Ever since moving into my apartment, we’ve been without a light in the dining room, so I decided to set about making one from re-used parts.

The shades are old-style glass milk bottles – I cut off the bottoms with a wet saw and sand-blasted them frosty. The wiring is from old computer power cables. The wood was all scraps salvaged from my father’s wood workshop.

The design took a while to get right, but eventually fell into place. The light quality is very nice and warm.
