Recycled Blender Lamp

The sun comes out, you dig our your seasonally used blender (for the smoothies) and find it no longer works. Be creative and recycle it into a lamp.

It seems a strange thing to do but electrical waste is very difficult to dispose of ecologically so the longer you can keep your item out of the land fill the better.

This design simply takes a pre-wired light socket and uses it to replace the ‘blender’ mechanics of the blender. There are full instructions on how to do it at Instructables and all you need, apart from the light socket, is a low energy bulb and a screwdriver.

Perhaps you have other old machines you can pop a light into - kitchens will never be the same again.
