Old Toys = New Lamp

Old Toys = New Lamp

In the so weird it's wonderful category is artist Ryan McElhiney's old toy lamp. Super easy to reproduce, all we'd have to do is grab a cord/socket and start piling up toys, hot-gluing as we go. Then, when we're done, shoot the whole thing with shiny lacquer. Of course, we wouldn't be limited to toys. Just think of all the other flotsam and jetsam we have lying about that could work.

This is inspiring and heartbreaking at the same time.

How very clever! What a great use of old toys. Perfect gift.

what a great way to "save" those old favorites and have them around to enjoy and remember fun times!  I have a 'Liono' somewhere that would be perfect to start this off!
