My Wizard Light Up Table


I was checking through my blogs I follow and found Dales wonderful new fortune telling table complete with light up crystal ball, and it reminded me of my own Wizard light up table and I couldnt remember if Id shown it off before.
This table used to be in my haunted house but as this now has a different story behind it, this is residing in my new Wizard tower in the top floor.
It has got dragon heads as the base, with a wonderful stone in the centre. The table top is glass, and has a cut out for the LED lights to shine through. The small LED box is a 3 colour one, shines red, blue and green which is quite wonderful at night! It works off a simple switch to turn it on and off, on a tiny battery to power it. The glass marble acts as the crystal ball on top and the colours bounce off it around the room!

I love the table, I think Ive had it for about 5 years or so now, its a favourite piece!

So hope you like it Dale and everyone else! You will see it again in situ in my wizard tower once its all redecorated

What a perfect table for a wizard! I love the dragon heads on the base. Did you craft the table also? I never thought to use a separate light source instead of one tied into the rest of the wiring. Brilliant!

Thanks for sharing it!

Dale, i wish I was that clever! No this was made by the talented Gerry Welch who also made my wonderful Haunted house too. It is a great light as like you say, no wires. I tend to just put it on when people are round to impress!

Hi Kat, It is isnt it, I love it!
