Let There Be Light Metamorphosis Monday

Welcome to Metamorphosis Monday here at Applejack Lane. Several months ago, our host Susan from Between Naps on the Porch showed us a lamp she made with a ceramic dog for her study. It was then that I had an epiphany to create a small lamp for my kitchen. After Barb at Bella Vista had her Rooster party a few weeks ago, I knew what I wanted. I had a lamp in my store that would work for a base and I gathered up the supplies I would need.



I thought this fellow had a lot of character for $5.99.I applied a little wood glue onto the padded feet...
placed it on the base...screwed in a light bulb...
added a shade...placed the lamp on my pie safe...
turned on the light...
and Voila'-a Metamorphosis Monday! Thank you , Susan. For more Metamorphosis Monday participants, visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.

I have a pair of rooster lamps that are very similar to yours. I wasn't clever enough to create them myself though... great job!

Love the lamp! Yesterday I bought a monkey tabacco humidor - to make my own. I've copied your bird bath planter and now your lamp - if you would get busy decorating for fall, I'll know what direction we're headed in :- )
