    Oh I think that orange cord is so tacky. It looks like a utilitarian extension cord.

    I am a total CHICKEN with electrical (even a plug in cord), so I would buy and not worry about keeping the fire extinguisher near me ;)

    How clever!

  6. Hmmm….love both of them! I love that this is so easy to make – the corner store by my house sells mason jars for less than $3…I got a ton of them! Maybe I’ll make a lamp! :)

    I’ve wanted one of these for a while–they have a few on Etsy I’ve been looking to buy, but DIY-ing one might be easier!

    I’d love to think I could conquer this DIY, but I think I will play it safe and buy :)

    I went to a hotel in NYC and they had the prettiest mason jar lights- it made me want to make my own!

    I’d be in the non-crafty category! Although, I’d love to try the diy anyway and see what comes of it. I think it’s such a cute idea for a reading light by the bed.
