Before & After: Adjustable Lamps Used As Plant Stands

It's about that time to start bringing your plants in from the cold. Take them in, help them adjust, and make them stand out... literally.

I wanted to prepare this year by possibly purchasing some plant stands. I was researching online and happened to stumble upon this adjustable pot. I loved the modern/industrial look. The inspiration plant pot resembled an adjustable light. I realized that I could use some of the broken lamps around my house. I love vintage lamps and have a small collection. There are a few that need rewiring and until I can figure out how to make that happen, I decided to use them as plant stands.

It's really very simple. All that I did was remove the bulbs and hardware inside the lamp. I then turned the lampshade upside down and found plants that would fit inside. I sat the whole plant inside, pot and all. The light isn't harmed in the slightest as the plant will be watered at the sink and placed back inside once it is dry.
