Creating a lamp from a candlestick

3 Jul

 I was on Francis Street (the antique district) in Dublin the other day and wandered into this little shop and saw these table lamps which were fashioned from antique silver candlesticks – cool, eh? So I did a little rekkie on the interweb to see if I could find others and I did.

Since moving to Ireland and having to wire a plug, I realize that wiring a lamp is not that complicated.  We don’t have lamp kits readily available here like you would in the states but I tell ya’ one thing — I’m going to be looking at candlesticks a lot differently from now on.
