My "new" lamp.....

I found a wonderful vintage movie projector at one of my favorite thrift stores. I knew right away that it was going to be a lamp in my living room. The $20.00 price tag was just right, so it came home with me. At first I was going to drill a hole in the projector. But it was just so cool and still works, and I couldn't do it. So the next plan was to find a really big dictionary and drill a hole in it. I bought a $3.00 lamp from the thrift store to use as the new lamp. Took the legs off it, painted the small section at the top with black spray paint, drilled a hole half way through the dictionary, mounted the old lamp on the dictionary. I cut a grove in the pages so the cord comes out the middle of the dictionary. It turned out great and I love it.
