July 13, 2009“New” Thrifted Floor Lamp For the Living Room
Happy Monday morning, all!
Hubs and I had a crazy weekend. We planned way too many activites, as usual, and only got a portion of stuff done from a huge to-do list. If you saw yesterday’s post, we did get our road trip in, which was really nice since we hadn’t done that in a long time. And I got a ton of great pictures, which I put up on Flickr.
But this morning I realized that I hadn’t posted a picture of our new floor lamp yet! You are going to have to excuse my ignorance on this one, since I haven’t had a lot of time to do research, so I don’t know who the maker is on this lamp or the time period. But I knew it totally went with our room. This is one of the few times I insisted that Hubs buy something, even if he wasn’t too sure about it. But I knew I wanted this lamp as soon as we walked into the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. And I refused to leave the store without it.
But Hubs was right to have some reservations. Not on the look of the lamp, which he loves, but that it is in some disrepair. One of the arms, the longest one in the back, is loose with no real way of tightening it. AND two out of the three lamps don’t have bulbs in them, because where the lightbulb screws in is so corroded that the threads are stripped. Which is a huge bummer. But one works, which is about as much light as we had before here, so we aren’t complaining. Now all we need is to figure out how to fix it ourselves, or where to take it to get it fixed.
So, if anyone knows the manufactorer of this light, feel free to leave it in the comments. Oh, and if anyone could recommend a good book on identifiying vintage lighting, let me know. I need to start doing more research!
