Been a while, but here's what I did today. Neighbor had given me a few crapped out late model 220 lanterns and I despised my dining room light fixture. Proof of concept, I'll be hanging a second lantern up next to the other one. Maybe 2 more in the kitchen as well. Super simple to do, only a couple holes to drill, hardest part is getting the but started on the bulb holder.

If you have a crapped out fount, cut out the bottom and add a downlight:

I used a cut-off wheel on a Dremel clone, but I think a stout can opener would work just fine. Polish and clear-coat the inside for more reflection.

Doesn't etsy require a pressure gauge to be installed on electric lamps and lanterns?

Haha! I knew that was coming. Let me assure you that these lanterns are garbage. Better to recycle than just toss.

How did you mount the lower bulb? I re used the old light fixture parts for this so was limited on resources. I do have a porch on my shop that's gonna need a deck light though.

I used two-pinlow-voltage landscape lights and bases. I epoxied the base to the bottom of a 220E valve I pulled from spare parts. I did have to drill the valve body for the wiring.

The LED bulbs are 12V. I used a 12V wall-wart (transformer) to power it. I later added a 12V motion/occupancy sensor so the light turns on to greet me when I pull in the drive after dark. It also greets all the neighborhood cats, dogs and deer.

It's a Benjamin air rifle that my dad gave me, rebuilt it recently with new seals. 22 caliber and shoots like a dream. Keeps the pesky squirrels at bay.
