Mr. Deanie’s Repurposed Quirky Fun Lamps

Today I am going to share with you the repurposed lamps that Mr. Deanie has been making. It all started with a tractor funnel and he was off to making lamps out of different objects. These are fun quirky lamps and would make great accent or conversation pieces.

First up is the tractor funnel I found a few months ago.  You can read about it here. I was thinking it would make a great hanging light. Next thing I know, it is a hanging light! Mr. Deanie does not let grass grow under his feet!

The tractor funnel pendant still has the original label on it which adds to its charm. It is for sale at Red Door Antiques in Canby.

Mr. Deanie had been bit by the repurpose bug (or from watching too much Flea Market Flip with me) take your choice. He was in search of tractor funnels. The next week he came home with 2 more. So more repurposed quirky lamps were added to the stash.


These tractor funnel lamps are for sale at South End Antiques in Aurora. You will find most of his quirky lamps for sale there.

And before you knew it, he found more tractor funnels. Funny thing about tractor funnels, I don’t think I had ever noticed them at garage sales before, but they are springing up! I did grow up on a dairy farm and we did have tractor funnels but it wasn’t something I was interested in at the time. Now I may just have to go over to the farm and snoop through the shed for some more old funnels. 

We had found this ceramic tree lamp a few years ago and it didn’t have a shade. So it had been sitting waiting patiently. Mr. Deanie went in “his stash” and pulled out an old metal logger’s tin hat. Now that was what the loggers in our families called them. Yes, we both have logging in our family history. They are a hard hat to protect the loggers in the woods when they are cutting down trees. This actually was a good shade for this lamp. Another quirky lamp was ready for sale.

Then he found this old smelting pot and made it into a lamp with an old galvanized tub for the shade. I had used the tub for flowers so it had holes for it to drain. I love how the light shines through the holes. This is my favorite one yet. He clear coated the rust and it is ready to use.


Then Mr. Deanie started collecting globes for lamp shades. We are holding quite a few “worlds” around here. These are for sale at South End Antiques in Aurora.






Now if you are at an estate sale or garage sale and you see someone gathering up globes, hard hats and tractor funnels, get out of his way! Mr. Deanie is on a mission to make the world happy with his repurposed quirky fun lamps!

Thank you for reading this far. I hope you enjoyed Mr. Deanie’s repurposed quirky fun lamps. Be sure and have fun and make memories when you out finding your own vintage treasures.
