Of course, step one of selling the things I find is figuring out how much they are worth so I did a search for vintage thermos and immediately found a bunch of LAMPS! Yep, apparently people make lamps out of old thermoses, which is not really a surprise since I've been making lamps out of all kinds of random items lately.
- crafty tip, in general, there is no need to buy a "lamp kit" at your local hardware store if you want to make a lamp since you can usually find used lamps for about $1 at your local thrift store and voila, you have a lamp kit! Lamp kits are usually between $7 and $11 so you'll save some bucks if you like to make lamps!
Not posting step by step instructions yet...since this was my first attempt and, while I think it turned out beautifully, I know I'll be simplifying the process before too long!
So I had an old lamp that I bought for $1, paid $1 for the thermos and $1 for the lampshade...total cost for this super cool retro lamp was $3!
