After three bottles of vodka, I’d probably think was a good idea too.
For the discerning, alcoholic hoarder in your life.
Yeah, but take a gander at all that wiring!
What’s juice for the goose…
Perfect for when they host those AA meetings at their house.
This is how the crafter pays for the Grey Goose…and hides the drinking problem from the neighbours. No empty bottles in the recycling bin, no problem!
I need to think of some piece of semi-usable crap I can make out of empty wine bottles and glitter tears.
Could I get $150 knocked off the price if I get the Natty Light version?
If they feel like making another crappy “upcycled” light fixture, I’d be glad to be responsible for draining the liquid from their supplies for them.
I don’t think they have any problem with that, everything in their shop is made from liquor bottles…. a whole lot of liquor bottles….
I feel like maybe I should befriend this seller.
And if they start making stuff out of empty painkiller bottles?
BEST FRIENDS FOR LIFE!
I suddenly want a Vicodin Night Light.
Sweet – but also warm and fuzzy.
If you thought that was bad, you should see the matching Vermouth desk lamp!
for that price there better still be vodka in there. Perhaps with one of those little tubes at the bottom so I can squirt it right into my mouth.
The light hurts my eyes! Where’s the Smirnoff switch?
I stoli’d it!
I got a tongue cramp trying to say that sentence.
You’re an Absolute monster!
what a Ketel of crap!
It’s not the light but the fumes that are getting to me. I’d better Chopin up a window.
I didn’t even know there was Chopin brand vodka until I googled it. Isn’t the name libelous with regard to the composer or something?
Is it true you can use Chopin to Polish a window?
Zippy, the classical radio host in me loves you for this.
Of course it’s Effen true!
Anyone who says that’s Moz-art must be into the white spirit.
I found the vodka bottles Chambord me. Perhaps if they used tequila bottles, I’d Patronize their shop. Sorry if this sounds winey. My mood has tippled in a downward direction today. OYO, who cares anyway? Let’s have another drink!
And I will worship anyone who can come up with a Grand Marnier pun. Really.
Orange you glad I haven’t?
If you can’t liqueur, join whore.
I Marnier the lack.
This will go perfect with my Jägermeister nightlight, my Jose Cuervo oven lamp, my Wild turkey refrigerator bulb and my Bacardi 151-watt security lights. Who says alcoholism needs to be a dark place…
And when my Bombay Sapphire floor lamp falls over again or my Kettle One desk lamp once more plummets to the floor or my Captain Morgan bedside lights end up shattered yet again I have plenty of replacements ready to go. Fuck! There goes the desk lamp!
To life, love, and lamp!
Pfft. Make your bedside light out of a Sailor Jerry bottle and it’ll be the floor that shatters. It’s the manly thing to do.
Does three geese constitute a flock?
It’s probably enough to get pretty flocked up, depending on your tolerance level.
I like how they artistically concealed the 52″ of light cord. Oh, wait…
Yeah, I was actually going to post that this might actually be kind of cool if they’d used some chain or metal tubing around those wires. Without that, it looks unfinished.
When the metal plate is mounted against the ceiling, the extra cord — which is completely necessary if you want to make the hanging height user-adjustable — will be concealed. If you were to go look above whatever fixture you’ve got in your own dining room, you’d probably find a similar mess o’ cords. It’s completely a standard way to do it.
This is still a stupid idea, but that doesn’t mean it’s not well executed.
This would look better if the cord running from the bulb to the base were covered by a metal tube or something. The bare cord just looks like something you’d find on a vodka-bottle lamp or something… oh, wait.
I guess that’s a better way of using your empties than bringing them back for the measly deposit you pay on the bottle. And a halfway decent excuse to drink.
I feel shaken by this, but oddly not terribly stirred.
It leaves me with a twist of lime’s disease.
Do these take Halo Gin bulbs?
“hanging hardware included”
Oh, you must mean for the lamps.
I believe if this is in your basement apartment, the last thing you need in your life is light. Because the last thing you want is to be able to see why your parents are right for being disappointed in you.
I’m guessing this thing doesn’t actually provide that much light.
This lamp has me in low spirits.
I think HK had some of the contents before posting this, judging by the slightly mangled caption. Cheers!
Shhhhh – she thinks these are windchimes. Just go with it.
She’s corrected “thee” to “three” now, but still no subject in the subordinate clause (or whatever it’s called – you don’t want to know how long ago I took that course). Does that mean she has had more vodka in the meantime, or less? Inquiring mind want to know.
*minds (and I’ve had two bottles of Octoberfest beer in the meantime, dragged here across half of Germany, but not at all upcycled).
Hey now, all this haterade is better used on crappier crafts.
I mean come on, aside from the possible head injury and trip to the ER who wouldn’t want this thing hanging over their crappy basement bar where they entertain their favorite group of lushes?
ah yes, these broken bottles from your head hitting them will keep you in stitches, Literally.. I mean, Seriously, I’m 6’2″ and klutzy.
I’ve actually always really liked these lights made from old bottles. A little overpriced though, considering how easy these are to make.
That was my thought. At the right price this would be lovely example of frat house decor.
I’m sorry, we only illuminate with Absolight.
If that’s a new low-alcohol vodka…
Too rich for my blood.
How much for a Pabst Blue Ribbon chandelier?
Keep it classy:
I’m okay with this as long as people don’t pretend they’re doing something “eco-conscious.” The tabs aren’t picked up from the side of the road, they’re purchased.
At least if you left them on the can, they’d get recycled. This POS is just going to end up in a landfill for a hundred years.
At which time it will be dug up and put on Cyberetsy as “Shabby Chic from the Stupid Ages.” And then someone on Cybergrestsy will say; “If that piece of shit won the blue ribbon, I’d hate to see the runners-up.”
Actually, that lamp is kind of pretty. I like the pattern of light it throws and it’s neatly done, not shabby. Gotta love the visionary snark from the future, though. I don’t suppose it’ll look too nice all rusty.
I like the shade itself, not the beer can part. You’re right, it does cast neat shadows.
And thus was ushered in the era of “Tab Chainmail”
Lightweights. The could make full sized shades out of Melchizedek bottles…
Someone who is not me needs to make an Absolut Regretsy ad. Rightfuckingnow.
And also an Absolut Etsy.
Nope, too classy. Take it down a couple notches.
You should make the stripper look like she’s crying.
Nancy Pelosi doesn’t cry, she drinks the tears of her enemies.
actually better executed than the one in the post
These are actually kind of neat. I mean, they’re tacky as hell and god knows I wouldn’t buy them, but it’s also not just crapcycled liquor bottles. For one thing they made good, clean glass cuts at the top and bottom.
Now, if those were scotch bottles I might be more interested.
I don’t have an issue with the concept of lights made from liquor bottles…I just hate it being painfully obvious they’re liquor bottles. Good upcycling should also somewhat camouflage.
agreed, Vagragrian. ‘upcycled’ doesn’t mean hung from above…
I checked out their website and some of their stuff is nice. I don’t mind things made out of old bottles, etc. They also for the most part work very neatly. That said this lamp is kind of sloppy with all the bare wire exposed and very overprced. Their prices in general should come down a little and then I might actually be interested in some of the candle holders.
If those bottles are “globes”, then someone really likes Mercator projection.
Yeah, that’s right. Fuck you, Australia. Go suck off Greenland’s unrealistically huge landmass-cock.
Up thumbed from this geographer. XD
Antarctica has really gotten fat. I thought she was on some kind of Ross-loss plan.
I’m guessing the seller lives here. But, it’s only a wild guess.
In our local wood someone has gone to an out-of-the-way tree and put an empty bottle over the end of every branch. Is that a zeitgeisty thing I don’t know about? Or just the neignbourhood Blair Witch after a good night out?
Bottle trees, an unfortunately not uncommon sight in the South. Not sure of the reason for them or origins, but there is a decided preference for blue bottles and they do not have to be be from alcoholic beverages.
Or, if your Hobo shack doesn’t have electricity like those High Falutin’ Grey Goose drinkers, you can just put a wick in a bottle of Monarch Vodka instead.
You mean, for those of us not experiencing a veritable Age of Reason? Like the one they had in France?
They sell these at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. When I was there, I desperately tried to get a picture, but I was really drunk.
I’d love that light fixture if it were made of Arbor Mist bottles. Ahhhh, Kool-Ade for grown-ups. And the bottles are prettier.
Okay. Now I’m picturing someone carrying this one step too far and making a baby mobile out of those tiny little bottles of complimentary booze they give you at parties.
A musical mobile, which will play this song:
Oh wow. This is an Etsy seller I can work with! I’m visualizing a beautiful partnership where I empty the bottles, and they turn them into overpriced consumer goods!
I hope distill gets comments all night long.
In the moonshine?
This was all the proof I needed.
There’s a market. Anyone gullible enough to spend that much money for vodka is probably gullible enough to buy the lamp.
