I bought this vintage floor lamp and I just adore the whole thing. I know I will need to rewire it. Do they have new light sockets with the pull chains to look old? I haven't tried to plug it in should I rewire anyway?
Yes you should rewire the light because I would assume your wire is frail and in rough shape not worth house fire... There is a lighting store in canton Ohio that catties
Sorry its Louisville Ohio by canton the name of the place is R and K electric
Thank you so much. I thought so but wanted to ask because I love the way it is.
Beautiful Find! Please do rewire and yes they sell reproductions that will match your lamp. xox
I have one that was my fathers. I am hopeing to rewire soon.
I just had to have it when I laid my eyes on it. Of course just like all the other junk (love) it called my name. lol
@Nancy Dean Davis As long as you replace the switch, socket(s) and wiring, you are completely safe in doing so.
There are many videos out there that show step by step how to do this and I've done my share of them in my lifetime.
If you don't feel confidant enough to trust your own work, have someone who does know a bit about it be with you as you do it. Or have someone double check it after you are done.
Rewiring is soooo simple and easy that you'll feel silly for worrying once you do that first one!
Believe me, been there - done that!
Please rewire the wonderful find and let us know how you did it.
Rewiring a lamp is a great learning lesson! Not really difficult either. That one would be awesome to redo! But don't plug it in until it's been rewired!
What a great lamp! Please, take it to a professional who will rewire it and replace the sockets with new ones in an "antique brass/bronze" finish. The shop will be able to do the job properly...do not gamble! Most probably, the shop will have shades that fit the lamp. Had I seen this before you, it would be mine!!!
It's not a hard job, but if you're not a DIY have it done. Have done many myself, but yes don't take a chance be safe.
My 'paint'store' is outgrowing my inside place. I want to store it in my husband's barn, but don't know how it will fare in the winter cold temps- 20 degrees, or the summer temps, 95+

Hi. These are very similar to the bedroom windows we have in our home. We have had them for a while now and we still have the screens which were so time consuming and tricky to put in

We recently moved into an older home and the bathroom tile wall is an unusual and unwanted color. I'd prefer to paint rather than remove it. Any suggestions?
