Turning Ikea lamp into a vase

Saw an Ikea ad recently. I love that Stranne lamp very much. The most interesting feature is the bendable arms that allow you to adjust & vary the shape of the lamp. I bought one before Chinese New Year to replace the same model I bought a few years ago.

The old lamp's synthetic rubber arms turned yellowish & brittle after a few years.

But all the light bulbs are still good.

I detached the top portion from the nickel-plated steel base.

My brand new lamp. As for the old one, I've turned it into...

a modern-looking flower vase.
