Steampunk light gets punked…

Yeah….so there it was sitting there looking forlorn. Élan-less.

Once a fairly expensive $450 dollar floor lamp

now reduced to less than 100 clams.

But it HAD élan. I could tell.


Aged brass and bronze arms and legs. The ability to hold a painting…small or large.

Why relegated to the back of the dusty SALE wing?

It’s cord had been cut. No plug. No life. the drama

C’mon….really? 80% off because of that?

I can buy a dollar fifty plug. I can. And I can read the directions

with help of a magnifying glass.


and I can put on a new plug.




Yeah…I know.

Now let us hope the punkin’ house doesn’t burn down.

Ya think I kid?

Those kind of things are treasures and can be re-wired by anyone. Except for me. I tried to re-wire and all the rest of it on an old fountain/fish bowl holder and failed miserably.

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Yeah Donna. I hear you....I too have failed miserably at times....who knows?!

Great Lamp! Love those kinds of deals. I have rewired a few lamps. Haven't burned the house down
yet. #famouslastwords
