DIY: How to Make a Lamp From a Broken Table - this is a great DIY! A table pedestal was drilled through the center (so the lamp wire could run through), painted & distressed & had a light kit attached. Tutorial.
Bought an old light fixture for $5.00..painted it black…replaced the bulbs with solar lights…and then I was going to hang it from a shepherds hook..but then I noticed it would slide right into a piece of conduit…so I painted that black also. Inserted that into the ground. Instant light with no wiring!
