Jordan and Yankee live in an adorable neighborhood with lots of young couples. Last fall a few of them got together and had a very successful wine crawl (here). So, to lift their spirits during the cold, dreary winter, they decided to have a beer crawl which is scheduled for this Saturday night. In preparation Jordan decided to make a beer growler lamp.
Meanwhile, she and I needed to do a project while we waited for another coat of cabinet paint to dry. Since Jordan’s dining room only has a real candle chandelier for table lighting, I suggested we make a lamp for the vintage bar (here) that stands in the corner. There are lots of local breweries in Syracuse, and so we took one of the growlers that is usually used for beer and turned it into a lamp.
We bought a lamp kit and a cork and an adorable burlap shade at Target. The tan in the burlap brings out the beige in the label.
After just a few minutes, we had this cute lamp. We specifically selected this Middle Ages brand because we liked the yellow. There are others touches of yellow scattered around the room.
We gave it height by adding two, (what else), beer books. With the addition of a green plant, the little corner will be a conversation starter at the crawl. Jordan thinks all of the guys will love it, and she hopes their wives do, too.
