Here is a unique project that I came up with. I took a 12 volt landscape lighting fixture, ordered a longer stem that matched the original (48”) and built a wooden base for a floor lamp. I housed a 120 to 12 volt mini transformer in the base. I have it plugged in to a timer so that it turns on and off automatically every evening. Just as it would if it were used outdoors. I used pine with a cherry stain.

Great idea, something like that would help me to avoid all of the squeaky toys my dog leaves in the living room at night. If I could just teach him to put them away . . .

Thanks Knothead62. It’s an aluminum threaded riser hand-painted “mocha” color. The source is Vista Professional Outdoor Lighting. Their site is www.vistapro.com.
