Touring trough thrift stores in my area I found this beautiful 70ies hair dryer. I just HAD to convert it into a lamp!

Step 1: Take It Apart

As the title of this step says: Take it apart! Then decide which parts to use and which to throw. I got rid of the motor and the heating.
Give the rest a good cleaning.
I opened the switch with a pryer to check the possibilities on the lighting. Four positions were possible: all off // all on // 1+2 on, 3 off // 1+3 on, 2 off
Great idea thanks for posting
This came out so slick! I love the color too. Thanks for the share.
