Today's You're Throwing WHAT Away??!! series is backwards. I intended to show you a light fixture I found on trash bulk day before this one. But that project is time consuming and I've been dragging my feet with it. But I couldn't wait to show you at least part of it so here's the little surprise that came with that light fixture.
No, it is not a doorknob, it's an enneadecagon-shaped light bulb. What in the world is an enneadecagon? It is an object that has 19 sides. It is also known as an enneakaidecagon. There's your useless trivia info of the day.
That's right, this light bulb has 19 sides!
And to my even bigger surprise, it actually works! So I couldn't just hide it under a lampshade.
I have this little lamp that I got from Freecycle a while back. I actually got two. The other one I revamped in this post.
The shade was perfect for what I had in mind. But first, I had to strip it!
Then I sprayed the entire thing.
And I mean the ENTIRE thing!
Here's how it came out.
If you're wondering why I painted the cord, tune in next week to find out. Speaking of tuning in next week, I plan to finally finish the fixture this bulb came with. Here's a sneak peak.
So come back then. And speaking of coming back, come back tomorrow to see April's Guest Host. See you tomorrow!
