Rusty patina and curved lines...two of my faves.
This is just fun on my barn board walls in the bedroom of my cottage!
See, when you move the dome over the bulb you can have more light....
or less.

I found this funky little rusty lamp the other day. All I had to do was clean it up and rewire it. I had never seen one like this before and couldn't wait to get it up and running. I changed some things around to make it a reading lamp next to my bed and it is just what I needed in what I call my "Rustic Romance" bedroom. With the little dome to control the light it is just perfect.

Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.

"Antique and vintage lighting is among my favorite of old things, other than you of course...Ah, hahaha!"...Aren't you two about the same age?!
