Collegiate lighting with a junky theme.
Even though its former life was loud and crazy it creates a very peaceful atmosphere over the dining room table.
>>Vintage Megaphone<<

It’s calling out…PENDANT LAMP!

This is why I never pass up buying vintage lamp parts at the flea market. Just to play it safe the wiring is new.
A disk of galvanized metal acts as a reflector and creates a soft glow.
It has an appearance of distressed leather.

A suspended Megaphone throws just the right amount of light to create a cheery atmosphere with an unexpected twist. In the last few months I’ve found several vintage Megaphones but this one was just the right size for a pendant lamp. To view my previous Megaphone project click on the link below.
