I made this nightlight for one of my grandaughters for Haloween. It is made from someone’s discarded chest of drawers. The wood is 1/2 inch pine from the drawer sides and back. Waste not, want not! Trick or Treat?

I love this Mike! Isn’t it great when you can turn someone’s trash to such a treasure? Yet another beautiful project from you! I would also love to see some pictures of it lit up if you get a chance. :)
It is “boo” tiful!!! (sorry . . . I couldn’t resist!)

A great day of dumpster diving for sure! And a fun project resulted. Nice!

That’s a very nice lamp. I love the design and your craftsmanship shows very much. Everything is so much the better considering the wood was salvaged.
