Remember when I snapped up tons of goodness from my
One of the things I grabbed was this base to an old windmill.
I brought it in because we had big plans for this.
It still has the price tag on it...$12.
You can see my plans, can't you?
It's perfect for making a vintage industrial floor lamp.
So, we ran down to Home Depot and bought a $10 lamp kit.
If you've never done this before,
the directions are on the back of the kit
and it is EASY!
I've re-wired lamps before so
my husband decided to try this one
and it took him about 5 minutes...okay, maybe 6.
We grabbed a natural creamy white square lamp shade
and there you have it!
For less than $25, we have a one of a kind
vintage industrial floor lamp.
What do you think?
I love it all rusty and a little bent in places.
It would be just as cool with a fresh coat of white paint too.
I'm leaving it like this for now.
I like the contrast against my white beadboard.
