Lamp Made With Vintage Rusted Oil Can
Lamp made with vintage rusted oil can upcycled.
Size: H26cm (including handle) x W21cm approx.
When I bought this can in a market it was in need of a good cleaning and some tlc.
I gave it a good clean and gently sanded down some rust that was peeling off. I then gave it 2 coats of varnish to protect it and avoid any further peeling.
I then added an antique looking lamp holder with light switch. I suppose a lampshade could be added, but I think that because of the nice shape of the top of the can just the light bulb on its own sufficiently underlines and respects the overall form.
I also used a retro looking electrical lead.
