Vintage fan light
ReadyMade magazine, a great DIY resource, has compiled a new downloadable book detailing 100 DIY projects. Here are just some of our favorites.
This dangerous-looking but awesome lamp was made with a discarded GE fan, a power cable from an old-school vacuum cleaner, a much slower motor than the one built in (for obvious reasons), and some fancy lightbulbs.
The final project would look awesome on MacGyver's desk, in Dr. Evil's workshop, or on my own bedside table; I could see the slow rotating effect of the bulbs easily mesmerizing me into a deep sleep. It beats my SpongeBob lamp shade, for sure.
