Matching your bottle with the right lamp shouldn’t be hard but fun.
We received this awesome bottle lamp on our FaceBook page and decided to share it. Why should we be the only ones who get to enjoy these photos?
This Coca-Cola bottle lamp was sent to by Jonathan B., with the following message;
This lamp was made from an up-cycled Coca Cola bottle and a lampshade to an old Coca Cola lamp from the 1970’s.
The first thing that jumped out at me was the bottle and lamp shade pairing. What a find! By incorporating both of these iconic items together Jonathan has really brought the bottle craft project together.
Coca-Cola (often referred to simply as Coke) is a carbonated soft drink produced by The Coca-Cola Company. Originally intended as a patent medicine, it was invented in the late 19th century by John Pemberton and was bought out by businessman Asa Griggs Candler, whose marketing tactics led Coca-Cola to its dominance of the world soft-drink market throughout the 20th century. The drink’s name refers to two of its original ingredients, which were kola nuts (a source of caffeine) and coca leaves. The current formula of Coca-Cola remains a trade secret, although a variety of reported recipes and experimental recreations have been published.
We would like to thank Jonathan for sharing his Coca Cola bottle lamp with us.
