About 30 years ago, I kept finding logs in-amongst my wood pile that looked like torsos/legs. With a small amount of sawing, and a bit of paint, I turned them into what you see below.
I had intended to make them into bedside lamps, but somehow they never got completed and were moved to the back of a shelf.
Lady M recently found them, and brought them out.
As you might see, Woodworm have been enjoying themselves, but I still think I might now finish them. The tiny holes gives them 'character', and we could certainly use some more lamps up at the barn.
I love them …. Remind me of the window displays in old haberdashery shop windows. Drew Pritchard ( the guy who buys antiques on TV’s Salvage Hunters ) ) would pay a fortune for those ! XXXXReplyDelete
Goodness! I've never thought of them that way.Delete
I love them. They would be great in my new garden, when we eventually buy a house.ReplyDelete
She put them on a low wall by the pool. They look quite nice there.Delete
Err, well, yes, I suppose so. Would the switches be on the lamp wires or on the bases themselves?ReplyDelete
I'm imagined buying ready made lamp 'furniture', with the switches on the wire.Delete
Not sure I like them - sorryReplyDelete
Not everyone's cup of tea, I'm sure.Delete
I think that the woodworm have indeed added to the character of these sculptural lamp bases. Will you be treating them to prevent further woodworm activity? I think that it is a great project and I hope that you will show pictures of the finished lamps here on this award-winning blog.ReplyDelete
Yes, I'll give them a coat of something. I shall have a look on Tuesday to see if I can find all that I need to make them into lamps.Delete
These are wild! I have a dozen or more pieces in a wood pile that'll be a pain in the ass to split, and I may give them a once over to see if I can come up with something so creative. Awesome talent!ReplyDelete
More just a bit of fun, I think.Delete
Love those Cro and they will look excellent as lamps or just lounging around the house.ReplyDelete
They're lounging about by the pool at the moment.Delete
I prefer boxers.ReplyDelete
They don't come boxer-shape.Delete
They'd be fun by the pool with a solar light installed. They look like swimming suits.ReplyDelete
That's a very good idea!Delete
The groin areas look a bit odd. Don't think I could live with them in the house.ReplyDelete
They came as nature made them.Delete
Do give the undies a bit of a touch up.ReplyDelete
I'm still wondering what to do with them.Delete
Are they tall enough to use as tables alongside a lounger?ReplyDelete
