I did it again. I took apart three light fixtures just to Frankenstein one. This would be the fourth lamp I've built or rehabbed which means I may have a problem.
It started (like it always does) with a handful of parts that piqued my interest at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I wanted to replace the angular brass shade with the matte black one but couldn’t figure out to attach it so that it could adjust in any direction I needed. So I brought the parts home to my workshop and added build a wall-mounted task tamp to my Furniture Flip Bucket List.
But then I found this interesting lunar landing light fixture with four articulating brass shades.
So I promptly harvested one to complete my fully adjustable assembly:
My new lamp swivels
The shade articulates
And the brass pole can go up or down while staying mounted to the wood block on the wall.
Oh yes and I have a new dresser to share too ;)
When I shared the original dresser on my Instagram stories, I had asked you about color for this piece.
Admittedly, some of you baulked when I whispered I may be thinking orange for this one. But I stuck with my vision and found the perfect mid-century inspired orangey-red for this one.
Even though I painted the entire body, I kept the tapered legs in the original finish.
I kept the original brass hardware too.
The extra warm tone to this piece made it especially fun to style with a pop of turquoise and some delicious terracotta.
I'm liking this color so much that I'm not listing it to sell in the warehouse just yet. But in the meantime, at least I can cross off another flip list item.
