Bam! Didn’t see that one coming now did you?
An old floor lamp can easily be used for soooo much more after a nice coat of glossy spray paint.
Here I used it as a hanging basket stand – where the hanging basket it a three tiered wire holder in yellow.
I added moss and some potting soil then in went the plants
I love the shot of color the hot pink gives to the yard and those flowers in the yellow basket just scream happy don’t they?
The floor lamp could also hold a cute bird house, a fresh welcome sign, or maybe even a bird feeder. The possibilities are really endless and since you wouldn’t need a working lamp this project is CHEAP.
I got two floor lamps (another project coming soon with the other) a painting for $10 at a garage sale. Add on the $4 for spray paint and that gives you an easy project that wont break the bank.
In the manner of full disclosure I will tell you that my hanging baskets (after the plants are watered) are too heavy for the lamp base and it tends to tip. A single hang basket would be no biggie though!
