I just finished up rewiring this vintage lamp I picked up at a local church tag sale. I was amazed at how easy it is to replace the wiring. Using a $7 kit from WalMart, it was a matter of minutes before the lamp was safely rewired. The directions included in the kit were pretty easy to follow.
With a new shade from HomeGoods, my lamp looks better than new... because it's vintage! I've been scoping out lamps at area stores and nothing compares to this one. The graduated shapes and gold detail were what caught my eye.
I've put myself on forced hiatus from looking for the "next great find" until I finish all my projects in progress. One project down... many to go!
