Have an old blender lying around? Might as well put it to good use or chuck it. We highly recommend turning it into a lamp because it’s cheap and easy to do. All you’ll need is a screwdriver and and a light socket like the kind you can buy for $3 at The Home Depot. An hour or two later, you should end up with a brand new lamp shaped like a blender.
While you could use a modern-day blender from the local Wal-Mart, using a retro-style appliance would really give the lamp some pop. Spend more than $10 and you’re a sucker.
