Primitive Rustic Metal Table Lamp

20 Mar

This unique table lamp is made from an old upcycled thick metal blade yard rack. While nothing historically, significant, this piece has been around for at least 30 years out at my parent’s property. I remember using it as a kid…I recently found it rusting away in the weeds out by the woods. It has such as cool look and design, I thought it would be the perfect candidate to upcycle into a cool decorative lamp. The finned blades are all fairly heavy steel with a nice rusty patina finish. The wooden handle and rotted away long ago, so I cut off the attachments and used those as legs to stabilize the piece so it stands vertically.

Has a nice rustic, industrial and almost art deco inspired appeal. It was then wired up using some vintage reproduction black twisted cloth covered wire with an inline switch and vintage style plug. It uses a vintage tube style 30 watt bulb which fits the vertical style of the light and puts out a nice warm glow. Should you require more light, you can replace with any standard base bulb.

Very cool piece and makes a great addition to your farmhouse, cottage, living room or office.

Dimensions: Approximately 14″ high x 6″ wide, base is approximately 12″ wideIMG_6254 IMG_6257 IMG_6259 IMG_6261

Rustic Table Lamp

8 Aug

This one of a kind table lamp is made from an old primitive barn find rabbit trap. Frame is made of wood, crudely fashioned, but well built, with various styles of chicken wire. Lamp has a nice rustic look and is very cool. The trap stands on it’s end, bottom “door” slides out to gain access to the inside to change bulbs. The lamp was wired up with two bakelite style sockets, wired with vintage style cloth covered twisted wire, and comes with two vintage “Edison” style coil filament light bulbs. Cord is approximately 8′ long and plugs into a standard wall outlet, with vintage style plug. I knew when I found this thing, it was a great candidate to be cleaned up and repurposed.

Very cool piece and makes a great addition to your farmhouse, cottage, living room or office.

Dimensions: 14″ high x 7″ x 7″

Crate has a couple cracks in the slates, but overall very solid and usable. Makes a great display and conversation piece. This is a true barn find straight from Pennsylvania.

Repurposed Swag Lamp – Barn Find Galvanized Funnel

20 Jan

Industrial / Farm / Garage inspired swag lamp. Made from a vintage galvanized metal funnel found in an old barn in Virginia. The funnel serves as the shade and was fitted with a new keyless socket to accept a standard light bulb up to 100w. The lamp is wired using approximately 15 ft. of vintage silver colored rayon cloth covered twisted wire and a vintage reproduction black bakelite plug. All wiring is brand new. Also included is an inline switch. This will make a cool accent piece for your bar, garage, mud room, farm house, kitchen or man cave. Similar to those made popular by Antique Archaeology.

I’ll add exact dimensions later on today, but the diameter is approximately 12 inches.

Currently for sale in our Etsy shop.
