Galvanized Chicken Feeder and Mason Jar Repurposed Into Lamp

I always seem to be drawn to galvanized chick feeders when I see them at a flea market or yard sale. (you can buy them brand new at a feed store too) I hung onto this feeder for a while until inspiration hit. Why not put a light in it and turn it into a lamp! I had a few primitive window candle lamps on hand in my stash so I took one out and took it apart and came up with a plan.
Time: 30 Minutes Cost: $8 Difficulty: Moderate
