For sure, many of us have vintage appliances that are not already in use. Why not do the same as what Melinda Marinsky did. She makes use of her vintage blender to create a blender table lamp.

It will not only save us money but environment as well. This eco-friendly blender lamp is one of the finalists in Inhabitat’s Spring Greening Contest.
