i've made a few different ones and posted some pictures on my flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/jayfish/sets/72157627988114745/ .
some folks have been asking for a how-to so here's a rundown of how i make my nightlights. this is my first instructable so i'm sure i'll forget steps or something. i can also take more photos if anything is confusing.
i really enjoy making these so let me know what you think!
also, if you'd rather just buy one from me, i have a few for sale here:
i've entered this instructable in the make it glow challenge! vote for me! and thanks for looking... :)
Step 1: Parts
vintage plastic camera
candelabra base socket
misc parts that i had on hand:
heavy black cardstock (i cut up the dark slide from my polaroid instant film)
odd screws (3 to replace some drilled out rivets, one to screw the base to the nightlight.)
tools i use:
dremel with cut-off wheel
hot glue gun
glue/epoxy made for plastic use
cordless drill w/various bits
matte or satin clear coat
black spray paint for use with plastic
a word about camera selection:
not all cameras will work for this instructable. when it's finished, the camera will be hanging from the receptacle so the lighter weight the camera, the better. also i'm keeping in mind how much of the camera will be sticking out from the wall as well as ease of disassembly/reassembly, room for the lamp socket, etc.
also, i really really like cameras so i'm not destroying any cameras that are in great/pristine condition nor any cameras that are rare (to me at least. if i can't find more than 2 for sale, i don't modify them until i do).
