InstructionsThis is the beginning stages of this project so I will add info as I go along. Basically I took the two lamps and removed all the electrical components.
Next I will paint them w/durable outdoor paint, and something that will withstand weather and water.
Then I will plumb them w/plumbing fixtures and attach a pump. I plan on them being bubblers, but may get fancy and add a sprayer ...

I purchased 2 old lamps at the second hand store. In case you didn't know it is my favorite place to shop!
What was your inspiration?
I want a garden fountain but don't want to spend a fortune on it. I thought I could take these pottery style lamp bases and make a fountain like the ones I have seen for $$$$$$. We will see how it turns out.
What are you most proud of?
Just the creativity of my mind sometimes.....But then again it may not work, but at least I will have tried.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make certain the lamp bases are not cracked, and that they will withstand weather and water. I do plan on taking them indoors for winter since I live in Wyoming and it gets REALLY cold here during the winter.
