In the so weird it's wonderful category is artist Ryan McElhiney's old toy lamp. Super easy to reproduce, all we'd have to do is grab a cord/socket and start piling up toys, hot-gluing as we go. Then, when we're done, shoot the whole thing with shiny lacquer. Of course, we wouldn't be limited to toys. Just think of all the other flotsam and jetsam we have lying about that could work.

Old Toys = New Lamp

Old, or New Toys = New Lamp! Get a lamp, get some toys (or whatever items you want), get your hot-glue gun, and start gluing items onto the lamp! Spray paint the whole thing when finished and tada! New lamp!
