Repurposing old items is a great way to make a new decoration or functional item. One idea is to use an old lantern to make a rustic-looking lamp. Many thrift stores and antique shops will often have old lanterns that may be beyond repair. All you need to do is learn how to retrofit a rustic lantern.

One way to retrofit a rustic lantern is to make a usable desk lamp or a table lamp. This task will convert the lantern from using kerosene or other fuel to having an electric light bulb. You will need to add a new socket for the bulb and connect a new lamp cord.

You may find a few modifications may need to be made to retrofit a rustic lantern. This could include using a different method to attach the internal components. However, the result will be a lamp that can be used as a functional or decorative item.
