Turn a Vase into a Coastal Glass Lamp

Lisa from Salt March Cottage has been working to rebuild and refurnish her beach cottage which was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. Understandable, controlling costs is a must. Lisa fell hard for a demijohn jug lamp with burlap shade, but the $269 stood in the way of Lisa and her dream lamp. Lisa knew that didn’t mean she couldn’t make a similar coastal style lamp and did just that with a vase from Home Goods and some items from the hardware store. Thanks to Lisa’s resourceful knock-off she saved a whopping $221!

Glass Bottle Lamp

Jeannine of The Concrete Cottage has long adored, but couldn’t afford, the glass bottle lamps at Pottery Barn. No matter how deep her love affair though, she simply could never justify paying $280 for a glass bottle and a shade! She can, however, buy a large discounted bottle from Michael’s, make a faux cork to top the bottle, tear apart an old lamp for parts, and turn it all into one convincing knock off!
