Upcycle Everything! Cactus workshop Makes a Lamp from a Decades-Old Discarded Oil Container

Cactus! workshop shows how with a little patience, ingenuity, and know-how, you can be inspired to turn basically anything into anything else. In this case he upcycles an old metal Repsol oil lubricant container found while touring an abandoned brick factory into the housing for a dimmer-controlled lamp. As usual his videos are simply great – really well done and a joy to watch!





I found this vintage can that someone had dumped while visiting an abandoned brick factory in Valencia. These kind of lamps are easy to do!
You just need a dimmer and an “Edison” style bulb. Add some fancy wire and blablabla for a more hipster result 😀
