I really enjoy Pinterest!
But I find it to be very addictive for me. .
And for that reason. .
I don't allow myself a lot of time on there. .
Maybe a few hours once a month or so!
I found an awesome idea a while back for Grant to do as an electricity project for 4-H.
It's a lamp made from a rustic toaster. The original lamp shade was an old colandar. .
But I happened to have an old silver bowl that we got as a wedding gift and never really used. .
Mostly because I hate to polish stuff!
There were no directions on Pinterest for making it. .
And the silver bowl.
The rest was up to him.
So he found a small metal tube that didn't overpower the size of the toaster.
They torched out a small hole from the top of the toaster (I know, it totally looks like a cheese grater!)
Which made this secretly taken photo a few minutes later. .
Apparently even reading the directions didn't help him. .
Because when he brought it to the house. .
And plugged it into the outlet in the kitchen. .
From my spot in front of the computer. .
The last thing I heard. .
Was the click of the lamp switch. .
And then all the power to the kitchen and my computer went off!
I had to bite my tongue. .
As Grant spewed some irritated words. .
And his dad looked at the whole thing and said. .
Well, Grant. .
the wires aren't hooked up right (Really! We hadn't noticed!)
It didn't take Grant long to rewire it. .
And, amazingly. .
The lamp has worked fine ever since!!
Live and learn, right??
