Lamp Makeover from beginning to ....End
Love Glass. Love Orange. Found this lamp at the thrift store a while back. I disassembled it and sprayed the metal pieces with Rustoleum "Hammered". After letting it dry, I wiped an ebony wood stain over the metal pieces and then wiped it back off with a clean rag.
When rewiring this lamp, I chose to use a shorter interior metal rod and forgo putting the top 2 inch metal tube in place.
Kits like this are available at your hardware store. I sliced it to the correct length using a dremel tool and continued with the rewiring process. I couldn't use the original because the metal was not threaded all the way down.
Unfortunately three kids and a glass lamp in the family room don't mix:
But she was pretty while she lasted.....
Perhaps someday I'll find a use for the remaining pieces because no...I won't get rid of them and yes... I am a horder. So for now she looks like this...
...while I try and make some decisions on what to do with my recent purchase.
