A few weeks ago, my multi-talented husband decided to turn his old clarinet (the one he played in middle school) into a lamp. He's been talking about doing this for years, and he finally took the time to do it. He looked around town at the different flea markets and discount stores to find the perfect base for the lamp. He was excited to find this marble ashtray for only $9...he just turned it upside down & drilled a hole in the middle of it! A much better use for the marble than an ashtray, I'd say! He then purchased a light kit at Lowe's & constructed the lamp. He only blew the breaker once before he got it to work properly! I'm so proud of him! He's quite creative!
