The Rusty Old Lamp

This is an old 4 light lamp.  One of the arms broke off and the wiring has been removed..not to mention it’s rusty has heck..  don’t ask me why I didn’t throw it away..(because I’m a pack rat – that’s why)..    🙂

Well, remember I said I’m cleaning out – getting ready for a huge 49-mile yard sale our region is having (so if you’re interested in a weekend thrifting trip, head to Chester, South Carolina June 6-7, to begin your 49 mile junkin’ journey.   I gave it a quick coat of copper paint.

But I’m still not going to use it as a lamp…   so moving along.. found my vintage hats collection (you’re probably saying – “sheesh…what don’t she collect”.. chuckles…

It’s time to display them properly, after all Spring is coming – add they add a nice touch to the foyer

Just re-arranged the table a tad bit and it’s a simple new look

  1. What a clever idea! I wish I would have thought of that when I had a lot of vintage hats in the shop. I’ll be looking for a lamp base like that for the next time. The hats are so charming.

  2. Yes, yes, and YES!!! What a great idea!!!

    I think it’s terrific that you save stuff. You come up with such great ideas to use it all, so what’s the harm? This is one of your most stellar ideas yet!!! Love the hats! I’m into hat mode now, so I’d probably be wearing those bad boys everywhere!!!
