Crutches Upcycled Into Tripod Lamp

I was looking through one of the high end furniture web sites when a small picture of what looked like crutches caught my eye. On closer inspection it turned out to be a super cool vintage tripod lamp and I thought--hey, I could do that!
Check out my blog for more upcycles like this.

    Wow! I never would have put the two ideas together. I'm guessing you've used crutches before?

      @Scott Valentine I already have a tri-pod floor lamp, but had I not I'd be on the search for wooden crutches. I might away to make to give to our son when he gets a place of his own! Thanks to the details on your blog I'll have no trouble making one just as awesome. I love the hammer metal details you added. I never would have guessed they we spray painted on if you hadn't said so. Awesome detail!
