Good Questions: Glass Vases into Lamps?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)
Hello AT,

I have two very beautiful vases that I bought from Dandelion last year. I absolutely love them, and just got the idea that I wanted to turn them into lamps for my apartment. I am not the DIY type, and was wondering is there a place in SF that could turn my modern vases into custom lamps?

Thanks! JC

Dear JC,

Your lamps are beautiful and we agree that theyd be lovely vases, sort of along the lines of Simon Pearce’s, only much more ethereal.

We recently did a post about turning prized objects into lamp bases, and we’d refer you there and suggest you attempt a DIY–but we’re pretty sure that drilling holes into delicate glass to make way for the wiring falls into the realm of the impossible, even for a expert DIYer. But that’s why we have readers. Hopefully someone will beg to differ–and knows of a great resource who can do the construction and wiring for you.
