Materials: Lampan Table Lamp, Tin Tray

Description: The IKEA Lampan shade is removable for bulb replacement, and the shape of the base resembles the pedestal of a cake stand. It just so happened that I needed a cake stand, or more specifically, a cupcake stand.

I began by disassembling and removing the electrical and lighting components. Next, I spray painted the base, shade, and food tray orange. Gorilla Glue was applied to secure the tray on top of the base. To add visual interest, and a layer for food safety, I cut a circle of scrapbook paper for the tray top. The shade found a new life as a vase - the perfect accompaniment to some Halloween cupcakes.
