Bare with me in these photos.... I'm cleaning, sorting, actually JuNking in my OWN house! (And that's no lie!😬.)
Anyway, I got these 1970's light fixtures from my friends parents, we have been friends since like we were 3 years old in Sunday School. I spent many, many sleep overs at their home from kindergarten through 12th grade. PS I look more like my friends Mom than she does so it was always kind of a joke that I was the brunette daughter she never had! Of course I'm the long winded story teller- back to my photos, and no I'm not drinking the yummy Bumble Bee Red North Dakota wine, (it's a gift for my Mom). Thinking where can I put these lights or what can I do with them as they have great memories of my childhood. It came to me, lets turn them into bowl stands! And no, I'm not the first person that has had this idea, thanks to magazines and Pinterest we have seen them some 1,001 times. I'm going to quick refurbish these and show you how very SIMPLE it is. Actually took less time to make than it takes to read my story about them! I kinda have that "Oh! Look a squirrel " mind! I get side tracked way to easy...😜 most of you know this by reading when it's my turn to post. Not only sidetracked when writing, but really bad when I'm, say, cleaning! The steps are explained below
1st- Remove the globe and lightbulb if one is still intact.
3rd- Once little screw is removed from inside the socket the bolt thing will slip off.
4th- Use the bolt thing and the nut you moved in step 2 to reattach the decorative piece to the base. Tighten.
Next see the little screw inside the socket? Unscrew it. Please use a screwdriver, not a pairing knife like I did! Remember I was sorting and cleaning, not planning to re-purpose anything today so no tools on the table (well not the right kind anyway) just a knife!
And boom, you have a bowl stand!
See the tea light in the bottom? This would look really cool for a wedding, but I recommend using the battery operated ones!
