Repurposed Vintage Floor Lamp With Chicken Wire Lamp Shade

So I may be a little nuts (please don't ask my friends) but when I buy something from an auction, flea market or yard sale the item calls my name. Begging for a new home with some new luv. It is a feeling that is just that a feeling. I fell in love with this vintage floor lamp. The colors were repulsive, pink, blue and gold. I could see it in my mind as to how it was going to look like after it got an overhaul aka luving. Well many oops later it is finished not as I had plan but on this one I had to roll with the punches and go to plan B,C, etc. My Blog explains the oops in detail. Hope you enjoy.

    Really like your lamp, rust-is-must! For my taste..I would like to see the chicken wire shade only, no cloth.... especially for outside appeal...this way you could also see the sockets and pull chains.
