Introduction: Lightbulb Salt and Pepper Shakers
I got my idea from here.
I liked his idea, but didn't really like the look of the black tape and soda cap. So I bought a couple of light sockets, scrapped some wire from an old CPU fan, hollowed out a couple of bulbs. Then I designed a stand to look somewhat like a light post and cut it out of 3/4 MDF (I had some scrap left from another project). For the shaker lids I used automotive button caps. They have a nice flange to allow the cap to pop inside and hold while the outside covers everything up nice while still allowing the bulbs to be screwed into the sockets.
If anyone likes it and wants to make one, let me know and I will do an instructable. My sister-in-law saw it and she wants one, so......
