I came across a box of “free” stuff at a thrift store. I found a beautiful broken cake stand base and knew I could turn it into a beautiful color changing lamp.
I bought these waterproof, color changing LED lights with remote online. they are really cool – you can pick a solid color, rotating colors, and more. You can find them here
I placed on upside down in this broken cake stand that I found for free at a thrift store.
I then placed hot glue on the top edge of the cake stand. You could use another adhesive if you like but I wanted to be able to get it back off so that I could get to the light in case I needed to replace the batteries.
Another alternative is Museum Wax – it’s designed to hold things in place during an earthquake.
I then placed a bowl I had on hand upside down onto the cake stand.
I let the hot glue cool completely.
I placed the lamp in my living room and use the remote to turn it on. Since the light inside is waterproof and well protected by the glass I can also place it under my covered porch to enjoy on a warm evening.
