This was inspired by Deek Diedricksen’s wine bottle window from his book “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks”, his videos on You Tube and his website relaxshacks.com. He is a colorful character and outspoken in the
small house movement. He also has a small house he built in Vermont out of many recycled and free materials. This lamp has three large wine bottles with three lights in the bottom section and controlled by a dimmer switch.
