Bring the blinding brightness of street lighting to your work space by turning an old street light into your new floor lamp. This street lamp was found at a building reuse store. It looks like it was badly damaged, partially warped, and was missing the glass cover that protects the bulb. Since I was only using the light housing it was perfect.
This industrial lighting solution is unique as it gets, and sure to stop a few of your coworkers in their tracks. And, just like real outdoor public infrastructure, it provides a great canvas for tagging and stickers.
The center of this project is obviously the street light housing. I found mine at a salvage yard that collects all kinds of crazy stuff. You can check out the field trip we took here
The street light was in pretty bad shape, so I had to clean it up with a sandblaster and some elbow grease to make it look decent.
