This old tole lamp has seen many rewires. It's from 1930 and a family hand-me-down I didn;t want to give up completely. I unwired it, flipped the shades, added clay pots and plants. It hangs on my deck.

My first thought was how cool is that! Love it. Not only it is family heirloom but it has a whole new life. Great re-purpose.
