Grandma’s attic (as in, my own Grandma’s attic) hosts a seemingly endless selection of awesome, vintage everything. It’s my favorite of all of the secondhand shops, although I’m never actually buying, more so just browsing, appreciating, admiring decor that has come full circle and I could swear is sold in West Elm today. And sometimes donning fur-collared coats that I’d never be able to pull off in public but can totally work a catwalk in on the third floor of her urban bungalow.
Today’s post, of course, isn’t so much about the fur coats or a certain umbrella holder that I’ve openly claimed as my own someday, it’s about a fabulous vintage lamp that’s from way back when electricity was fresh (per a vintage lamp expert that I had advise me on it’s rewiring). Grandma wanted it working again, and she challenged me to fine tune it for her.
In this post on DIY Network, you’re about to see how I totally got it workin’ all over again. She’s going to be so pleased.
P.S. Sometimes I get all radical about my cleaning supplies, they make my eyes light right up. In this bonus post on DIY Network, check out some of the tools of my housekeeping trade.
