Primitive Rustic Metal Table Lamp

20 Mar

This unique table lamp is made from an old upcycled thick metal blade yard rack. While nothing historically, significant, this piece has been around for at least 30 years out at my parent’s property. I remember using it as a kid…I recently found it rusting away in the weeds out by the woods. It has such as cool look and design, I thought it would be the perfect candidate to upcycle into a cool decorative lamp. The finned blades are all fairly heavy steel with a nice rusty patina finish. The wooden handle and rotted away long ago, so I cut off the attachments and used those as legs to stabilize the piece so it stands vertically.

Has a nice rustic, industrial and almost art deco inspired appeal. It was then wired up using some vintage reproduction black twisted cloth covered wire with an inline switch and vintage style plug. It uses a vintage tube style 30 watt bulb which fits the vertical style of the light and puts out a nice warm glow. Should you require more light, you can replace with any standard base bulb.

Very cool piece and makes a great addition to your farmhouse, cottage, living room or office.

Dimensions: Approximately 14″ high x 6″ wide, base is approximately 12″ wideIMG_6254 IMG_6257 IMG_6259 IMG_6261

Vintage 60s Red Glass Hanging Lamp

10 May

We picked up this really cool vintage hanging lamp/light fixture up near Floyd, VA on our recent trip. It was filthy and wasn’t working, so we cleaned it up, rewired it with a 12′ cord and added an inline switch. Glass is deep red in color. Brass colored (probably not real brass) top cap. Approximately 10-12″ in diameter. Just get a hook and chain to hang it from the ceiling, or could hang from a stand. Super cool and very unique. $100
