Electric booze to brighten your pad
A wise man once said you can take the Jack out of the liquor cabinet, but you can't take the liquor out of the Jack, and then make that mofo a lamp. Wrong on both accounts, Dad: LightHeaded.
Handmade in Indiana by a dude with an eye for fine booze and a knack for electrical work, LH crafts working desk lamps from the bottles of a massive selection of fine spirits, but only empty ones, 'cause otherwise it'd be both wasteful AND dangerous. He's lit up all sorts of classic brands, from whiskey (Canadian Club, Wild Turkey, Maker's) and vodka (Goose, Absolut, Belvedere) to a "naked" Jaeger bottle that's without a label -- now if we could only achieve that with each other. They've also ventured into the realm of tequila (Patron, Cabo Wabo, Cuervo), sweeter stuff (Kahlua, Frangelico, Baileys) and a tall, narrow bottle of Galliano, an Italian herbal liqueur that's a key ingredient in a Harvey Wallbanger, the other one being your mom...HEYOOO!
Shades are not included, but you can ask the dude to get one for you; also drop him a line if you want a lamp made with a hooch he doesn't have, but as a wise man once said, give a man a liquor bottle lamp and he'll have light for a day, but teach him to make one and he'll be like ... do you appreciate me now, DAD?! Do you?!?
They have way more alcoholic appliances than we could show you at Etsy.com
