Vintage Truck Lights

Modern Anthology Find or DIY Inspiration

Oh man, tell me you don't love the industrial charm of these vintage truck lights?

We spotted this convoy over at Modern Anthology. After discovering they carried a $350 price tag, we were a little crestfallen. But then I remembered a steel toy fire engine I happened upon on a recent thrift store outing. It had seen better days. There were some significant dents and major rust issues. To say it didn’t roll so well would be an understatement, and I couldn’t see myself bringing home something so big with such little play value. But of course I hadn’t seen its hidden potential to become an amusing lamp, with a pendant light cord hanging from its extendable ladder.

If you’re willing to shell out the greenbacks, these vintage truck lights are pretty awesome. But then again what a great DIY project to resurrect an otherwise nonfunctional toy that might be collecting dust in an attic somewhere.
