Because lamps are just
one more category
in my [long] list of obsessions.
All lamps are nOt created equal–or beautiful.
But they MaY have some interesting parts to them. And if they’re cheap, I buy them, deconstruct them for their good stuff…
and add that good stuff to the boxes…
until further notice.
You see~I love to build lamps! From odd parts.
This lamp just looks like it should be a TROPHY URN, so I’ll only deconstruct it then rebuild it and add 2 extra parts to finish it!
I didn’t need to take it down the whole way, I just wanted to show you how far you can go to change the look of your own lamps! ; D Even that square pedestal is two pieces–but they were bolted together really tight so I left ’em alone.
9 decorative parts make up this lamp.
I’m going to reuse 6 of them and add 2 of my own.
The gold cap -or escutcheon- and an artichoke finial.
I’ll play around with its metal finish later…
’cause I don’t know how I want it to be yet.
Hmmm…wonder if I have a marble pedestal in one of my boxes-?!?
I’m sharing this project in this fabulous linky party!
