Working on mom’s bedroom meant I had to tear things up~
Restoring things, brought my attention back to a lamp I’d looong forgotten about. A project from the early ’80′s.
Was I BORN working on projects–??
Anyway~ here’s the lamp, made of mixed parts.
Nothing “fancy,” but the parts seem to come together very naturaly. I’ve collected lamps and pARts forEVer–and have boxes full of lamp-parts to play. *Confesion~ I’ve had 2 lamps sitting “in the works” for a while now in Page 10, just waiting for the right parts to complete them. Can’t hurry perfection! ; D
it’s made of 6 varying lighting parts, then painted with multi-layers of metalic paints that bring it all home!
1- I am obSESSed with finials. I’d like to say I have many in my collection, but I give them up to my projects, then cry & pout as they leave me. C’est la vie.
2- An upside down glass shade from a vintage ceiling fixture.
3- Vintage harps are so much more fluid! This one is unusual in that it is cast metal. It’s rare to find these.
4- Just a spacer piece, but I like the twist in its design. They’re comonly found, and if I see a super chEAp lamp with a rEAlly cool one–I’ll buy it!
5- The bottom section from an Art Deco floor lamp. Sometimes there’s just one little part of a lamp that’s cool! Pilfer it.
6- A cool lamp base! I’ve bought some pretty uGly lamps just to get the base!
