Globe lamps.
« on: December 14, 2019, 03:02:37 AM »
Hi all.
Some of you might know that I was distributor (Now retired) on planet Vietnam
for some well know professional photographic manufacturers
like Manfrotto, Bowens, B+W, LEE Filters and more
and for not so well know manufacturers like :
Daylite, Falcon Eyes, Farseeing and others that are active well know in Asia.
I bought from Falcon Eyes (Hong Kong) frosted platic globes for special effects
with 360 degrees coverage
and the Vietnamese photographers here didn't like it, too bad for them.
Soooo.... I still have unsold four (04) small ones and one (01) big one and I
decided to put them to use by using them as furniture lamps for living room or bedroom.
The big one I will keep in my office.
Soooo... Here are a few pictures of the start of my project.
More pictures to come when the project is completed.
I have to let dry the paint (Spray pait in can) so it will take
about a week.

Thanks Charles,
but I also consider myself an opportunist,
putting to use something that would otherwise gather dust.
My wife is good at that, I mean, she prefer to keep stuff gathering dust,
instead of throwing it away, she says :
One day we will be glad that we kept it.
That's why we have tons of stuff waiting for further use all over our house...  :lol:
One day soon, we will have to decide what we keep and what we give of trash.
When back in Canada, we will be living in a smallone bedroom appartment
instead of a house the size of an hotel.

Hi all.
At last, at long, long last....
My five (05) globe lamps are ready to glow and make a show.
I've drilled a hole on top of the globe to let some heat out, even if with a 16 watts
bulb it doesn't put much heat.
I have also a slot at the bottom, I've use some small gold nuts.
They are not perfect, especially the first and second one, I was more or less practicing.
I will keep the big one with the red rectangular switch and probably sell on Kijiji the other ones,
I'm sure I wont make any profit on them, if so, then I will keep them.
(Unless I am wrong, Kijiji belongs to e-Bay ? ? ? )

  You are not alone with "stuff". Time to go thru what we have and have a yard sale.
