Brandee Frost first got familiar with vehicles during her time serving in the US Army as a vehicle mechanic. Now, years later, she’s still working with cars everyday out of her husbands automotive shop. This time around, however, she’s doing something a little different – repurposing car parts as home decor. Our favorite piece of hers at the moment? The Corvette Valve Cover Desk Lamps.
These valve covers are sourced from older, used engines as well as being bought new from parts dealers. Each are cleaned, polished or given a patina, and mounted onto harmonic balancers and wired to plug into your normal outlets. The desktop versions of these lamps (they come in wall-mounting iterations as well) measure in at about 20 inches in length, stand at 16 inches high, and weigh a hefty 19 pounds. All things said these American Made lamps are a great desktop edition for the car enthusiasts looking to get some work done somewhere other than the garage. Prices are set at $275. [Purchase]
