Industrial Style Work Light Ceiling Fixture

29 Aug

This is a one off industrial style light fixture made from black iron pipe fittings and upcycled 6″ aluminum work lights. Designed to be hardwired into a standard ceiling box by a professional if necessary. Depending on preference, it can be mounted directly to ceiling or used with a canopy to hang lower to a desired height.

Each lamp features a push switch so they can be turned on or off individually. Cool industrial, machine age design makes for a great conversation piece anywhere in your home. Bathroom, over a kitchen sink or island, even over a bar or pool table.

This is an easy install for most folks or handymen, but as stated above, may require professional installation based on your skillset.

33″w x 17″h

Available in our Etsy shop.



Ipod / Iphone Docking Stations

28 Aug

Scandanvian IPOD dock

My take on an idea that I borrowed from some other folks on Etsy. We have quite a few of these in the works. These are the first two designs, each being a one off design.

First one is a simple, modern Scandinavian inspired design. Oak block stained in red mahogany, legs and back rest made of 3/16″ cold rolled steel. Size is 9″ wide x 6″ to top of back rest.
Second one is made from a slice of oak log. 11″ long x 6″ wide. Red mahogany finish with 3/8″ steel legs. Both $49, available in our Etsy shop.

Hand Painted Wedding Invitations

15 Aug

We try to be pretty well rounded around here and not focus too hard on any one particular thing. I’m also an art director / graphic designer by trade. That’s my “real” job, anyway. After 13 years or so, it’s easy to get bored with it. That’s what prompted us to start Oh! Glory Vintage in the first place. We both needed another “creative outlet” if you will, and a way to make a little extra money at the same time. After sitting at a computer all day, it’s usually the last thing I want to do when I get home. But anyway, our good friends are getting married next month and asked if I’d mind doing their wedding invitations. No big deal usually. Then she showed me what she wanted and it was a totally different style than I’m used to doing. They’re having the ceremony on a farm up in the mountains of Virginia, inside an old dairy barn and wanted a “whimsical, folk art style” – Jessica’s words, not mine – design for the invites. Anyway, this is what I came up with. All hand painted in acrylic paint and then type set on one of those computer machines. Pretty happy with how they turned out, and most importantly the bride was happy!

Cast Iron Rooster Wall Sconce with Chicken Wire Shade

15 Aug

Really cool vintage cast iron rooster wall sconce. This was a crusty flea market find, but had great potential and was still in perfect working condition. The base is cast iron in the shape of a rooster. Original black finish with some nice patina. Original switched socket accepts standard bulbs. It was missing a shade, so I made a small shade out of chicken wire – very appropriate I thought – for this piece and painted it black to match. It comes with a round vintage Edison style bulb with coil wound filaments which mimic the pattern of the chicken wire. Sconce mounts easily to any location with one screw or nail. Very simple and plugs in to a standard outlet.

Size is approximately 12″ high x 6″ wide

Ready to grace the walls of your home now. Available here.

Industrial Steel Pendant Light – Recycled Steel Sprocket

14 Aug

One of a kind steel and brushed nickel finish industrial style pendant light.

I do a lot of work on motorcycles and old trucks and whenever I have or find an old part that’s no longer usable, I throw it in pile until I can find a way to repurpose it. This started out with a 21 tooth steel front drive sprocket off my Harley Davidson. The sprocket was cleaned up a lightly polished and then fitted with a new nickel finish pendant assembly. Ceiling canopy is nickel finish with approx 4′ of wire so it can be cut to hang at your desired length. The minimalist cage was made by bending some 1/8″ steel round stock which was then fitted and welded to the sprocket.

I’m pretty happy with how this one turned out. Very minimalist and would make a nice accent light over a bar, island or work bench.

Pendant accepts one candelabra base bulb.

Pendant Size: Approx. 10″ h x 4″ w
4′ of wire and complete installation kit included
Available in our Etsy shop.



Repurposed Crouse Hinds Industrial Cage Table Lamp

12 Aug

Industrial, machine age, steampunk style hand made table lamp. This is a one off lamp, made from a vintage Crouse Hinds industrial explosion proof light cage from the 1930s-40s. Original galvanized steel cage with original glass. Very well built. Glass globe threads into base, cage threads into base then secures with a set screw.

Lamp base was made from a piece of 2″ thick reclaimed wood, stained with a dark “Kona” stain, and sealed with a matte finish varnish. 3/8″ steel rods support the lamp and were painted with a galvanizing finish to match the cage and then clear coated.

All lamp internals and wiring are brand new. New pull cord lamp socket is mounted inside and the lamp is wired with vintage style black twisted cloth covered wire and new two prong plug. Antique reproduction Marconi bulb is included, to finish off the vintage style, but lamp accepts any standard base light bulb.

22″ overall height
6.75″ square base
4.75″ diameter x 9″h cage

Any questions, please ask.
