Hi All! Today I am sharing a repurposed yard sale lamp yard art. I found this heavy-duty lamp at a yard sale a few months back. Thinking that it would be perfect to upcycle into some yard art because of how heavy it is. It won’t topple over easily.
It’s been sitting in my thrifty finds in the garage waiting to be repurposed. I wanted to add something to the top but haven’t run across the right item until I found this iron French damask while digging through my box of metal items for another project. This French damask would make the perfect topper for my lamp yard art.
Now that I have the perfect yard art topper let me show you how I put it all together.
Diy Yard Sale Lamp Yard Art
First, I cut the cord and pulled it out. Since the lamp was put together in a couple of pieces, I decided to just cut the rod down instead of removing it to keep the lamp together.

The iron French damask fit perfectly on the rod so I measured how much of the lamp rod that I needed to left for the topper to fit then I cut the rod down to that size using a hacksaw.
Next, I carried the heavy lamp to its new home in my yard.
Using clear gorilla glue, I squeezed out some into the end of the metal damask and some around the rod.
Then I placed it onto the rod and left it to dry.
That’s it! This was an easy repurpose, all I needed was the right topper for my yard sale lamp yard art. Have you turned any lamps into yard art? If so, please share in the comments below, I am always looking for new ideas!
