Wait, Don't Throw Out That Can: Ingrid's Food Can Lamp

Looking for a great floor lamp but can't find something just right? Take a page from Ingrid of Wood & Wool Stool and create your own with a little help from your pantry.

A stack of tins that formerly held olives form the pole of this lamp, but any tin of canned food with a pretty label would work as well (although we'd suggest that they're all relatively the same size). For a more industrial look, remove the labels. Or consider redecorating them with leftover wallpaper. Wire it with a lamp kit and top with a pretty shade.
