Borrby Lantern lamp from Grono Disaster
Materials: Borrby Lantern, Grono lamp parts
Description: After my dog broke my Grono table lamp, I wanted to get creative and salvage the lamp base. I took a Borrby lantern I had on hand and with a few minor alterations turned it into a great new lamp! Using a 1 1/4″ hole saw bit, I drilled through the bottom to pop in the base. Tin snips clipped out a section of the base lip for the cord to slide through (so the lamp would sit flat) and a little frosted glass spray on the panes softened the harsh light. In less than 10 minutes, I had a new, awesome lamp! This could also be done with the cord kit from IKEA, or from a thrift/dollar store lamp with salvaged parts.
