New Lamps for Old


Bought an old cartwheel type ceiling light from a junk shop yesterday for £30 and spent the evening converting it from electric to candle-power for post-Brexit Britain....




It's a pity the sheathes for the original light bulb holders are so wide, as they'd be perfect candle holders for long candles if tack-welded into position. IKEA extra-large tea lights are not a bad option though.

Might opt for some longer stubby candles that won't fall over and present a fire risk - will see once I remove the existing chandelier and hang this one.
