I came across this very weathered yellow parking meter that just needed some re-imagination.  The missing paint from years of weather gave this piece an instant Industial quality that I'm drawn to.  The actual base if from another lamp and the two married together made for this amazing "One of a Kind" upcycled Industrial Loft lamp.  The actual lighting mechanism is now behind metal mesh that once collected the change.  This is one of my favorite pieces from junk to treasure.
