    So cool! I saw a site that sold valve covers as desk lamps and they were very costly! Something like Junky to Funky, the base was iron pipe and 90° elbows, the V.C. from a 55 Corvette, some Edison bulbs and a braided cloth cord that whole thing was $500 & they were sold out of it! But you could pay $20 for directions of how to do it for $20, Crazy! Way to go for the comments above me, I am in Taylorsville in Carroll!
