Have an extra blender, toaster, or waffle maker lying around? Why not reclaim [2] these old appliances by turning them one into lamps like Virginia-based Melinda Merinsky [3] does. One of fifteen finalists in our Spring Greening Contest [4], her functional updates on vintage appliances range from toasters to cameras and waffle irons, but this blender table lamp is one of our favorite finds. It takes a 25-watt bulb, and its base has been rewired so that the on/off switch controls the lamp. If you’re a fan of this design, be sure to vote for it in our contest post [4]!
