Jake Rankin has found a new way to use old Spray Paint bottles by turning them into lamps.

Jake Rankin’s lamp designs involve using the canisters as lamp shades, and the spray nozzles as on/off switches. The design is decidedly unkempt, with paint dripping down the sides. The designs are currently on sale online for $50.

Implications - Giving old items new life is always a great way to make them appealing once more. With this in mind, small businesses are revamping vintage products, making them useful again and re-selling them as renewed and unique products. Individuals often find these interesting re-imagined pieces to be ultra creative, a clear selling point as it costs less for these companies to create these items since they are recycled.
