An industrial grain funnel?
Nah, It's been upcycled to a new porch light.
My front porch waited a very long time for this old rusty funnel.
I bought it almost a year ago for $10.
It's metal. It's rusty. It's the perfect thing for the porch.
It's been waiting it's turn in projectland.
(aka, waiting for The Cabinet Maker to hang it.)
Sawzall, Screwdriver, Screws, Silicone
He used the Sawzall to cut the metal.
The light's been there with just an outdoor light. yawn.
I knew the funnel opening would be close to the size of the existing hole.
- Cabinet Maker pulled the bulb socket down a bit so the bulb would stick further out.
I thought this was funny with Mike the dog peeking out.
I swear he's thinking:
"What's with the giant metal thingie?
Can't you people ever just buy a normal light?!"
Cabinet Maker screwed in the funnel and siliconed a plastic ring up to the wood.
(white plastic ring: recessed lighting trim)
Done. Charming. I like it.
Cross that off the project list.
