This is my first time making table lamps and it’s so easy that I had ideas for about 10 western style lamps. I made three to give you inspiration to create your own. You can purchase the lamp parts at home improvement or hardware stores and they’re easy to assemble.

I’ve always wanted to make western style mirrors. I bought a couple of mirrors from the craft store, one 12″x12″ and the other 10″ round. I used the weathered wood frame from the Clocks blog.
