If decanting your alcohol is not something you do, do not just throw the decanter out but repurpose it as the base of a lamp. All you need to do is grab a lamp kit which will include all the wiring you need, and drill a hole at the bottom of the decanter for the electrical cord to go through and you can have a beautiful lamp in no time at all. The best thing about this...MORE lamp is when it is turned on the light will cause the crystal decanter to sparkle as it reflects the light around the room.
