Mickey, Minnie & Pluto lamps

Recommended Posts

Those are so cute.  How do you transport them?  I finally have milk jug things but until I can tell hubby how we will carry them, he is not building them.

To transport them, I take the lids off (the lighting stuff is all attached to the lid) & they ride along side the cans on one of the bunk beds.  I wrap the cans w/ bubble-wrap to keep them from bumping each other.

They are fantastic. 

 

We sure wouldn't have enough room to bring something like that in our pop-up or pickup.  We already look like the Beverly Hillbillys putting stuff aside for our upcoming trip, and we are barely started!

 

Guess that's an advantage of a TT.
