Neat! I would do that but I already took a small lamp and shade that I had and sat it inside the very same type of coffee pot a month ago. It's now a nice light in my kitchen on the microwave. I wish I did it a long time ago. :)

A tip....fill the coffee pot with water and freeze..Punch the picture while the ice is still frozen inside...This will keep the pot from denting in when you punch the holes.

That is such a great idea Mojo. I love how it looks in the dark and the top lighting up is just an extra bonus of flair!!!
