To make a short story long..... I needed a shorter rod to 'fix' a lamp I was working on. It is cheaper to purchase a lamp from the thrift shop than to buy the part I needed.
Then the question is what do you do with the extra lamp parts?
Make Yard ART!!
Lane, Derik and Karlee helped me level and stack the glass. We hammered a metal rod into the ground so this beauty doesn't tip over. We also used up a tube of clear caulking to weather proof it.
