Giving a new life to old objects is a nice way to reduce costs, but also to recycle things around the house. If you feel crafty and would like to try a new idea, you can turn some old antic lamps into outdoor solar posts. They will look great on your front porch or in your backyard and help you be more economically-conscious with your energy use.
The trick is simple, apply a coat of paint on the old lamp (you can use any color you like), let them dry and then install solar lamps on it. After that, all you have to do is find the right place for them outdoors and enjoy your new lamps/design objects while sipping a glass of wine in the evening.
