Curbside find – Floor lamp base turned pedestal

Wednesday is normally craft day for the blog, but there’s been no time for crafting as of late. Obviously, there’s been no blogging time, either. Life’s still hectic with two more estate sales in the works, but maybe not as bad as it was over the past couple of months. At least I’m not moving mountains of junk out of the old shop or preparing for a yard sale. Thank goodness that’s all behind me.

Back in the spring I found, on the curb of a neighboring house, a chippy, all in pieces, broken floor lamp. Of course I grabbed that piece of junk! Ha! How could I pass up that piece of garbage? There are still a couple of pieces I’m trying to figure out what to do with, but this is what happened with the base.

I love old lamp bases! This post – Don’t pass up those lamp bases – shows a few of my favorites.

So what about you? Have you incorporated lamp bases into your decor? Have you turned a lamp into something else? Maybe a large candlestick or pedestal? Have you blogged about it? I’d love to see!
