My friend Susan Schneider of Shandells.com and I concocted another upcycling project: Transforming vintage percolators into table lamps. We came up with the idea when we did our first video — “Put a Bulb In It.” Susan — a professional lamp-maker — then used my percolator, found two more on her own, and turned out these adorable lamps.
I really like this idea because I see these vintage coffee pots for sale dirt cheap — all the time — there is a surplus, for sure! — and I would love to have one as a lamp to admire and use a practical way.
These lamps are cute as a button, but not in a too-much-sugar in your coffee kind of way. Susan now has the three lamps she made for sale in her online store.
