Vintage Lamp Parts Happiness

I love all things vintage lighting, and I cannot lie. Cloth-covered wire rules! Edison bulbs make my heart race! We made our own version of this sweet  www.schoolhouseelectric.com (Portland, OR) lamp, using an old porcelain fixture from our basement.

G.O. repurposed a vintage wooden surveyor’s tripod + made this cool floor lamp.  The lampshade is an older one from Pottery Barn.  It’s no longer available, but you could make your own easily.  Those pharmacy-style sconces were Pottery Barn, too, from an eBay seller.

But I digress. Back to the floor lamp. As awesome as it is, I know we (G.O.) could improve it.

Bye bye, brown cord! Hello, red cloth-covered cord from www.sundialwire.com!  And yes, this is why G.O. thinks I’m insane.  Meanwhile, I also need him to make me this awesome extension cord! Do you love it as much as I do?

Yum!

A past + future project.

He made us this awesome fan from the Sundial Wire website, but I sold it! Maybe I could persuade him to make us another! Stay tuned.
