    When you have recoloured or altered them you can make a beautiful table lamp from them using a kit available in most DIY stores. Check to see how it is put together as some have a metal tube running through them and the electrical cable can be fed down through it to keep it much neater. You then need to drill a hole in the plinth at the bottom to feed the cable through. Warning - you can get addicted to his idea as wine bottles, decorative spirits bottles, drift wood, etc can all become lamps using this technique.
