Repurposed Vintage Sears Electric Fence Charger Box Lamp


I figured it was time to create another repurposed lamp and at the same outdoor sale I found the vintage nightstand at (in previous post), I found this way cool vintage Sears electric fence charge box.
After disabling the guts, I added some vintage fisherman's paddle pushers I found at the same outdoor market sale. They were used to paddle your way around when fishing in an inner tube. The colors worked perfectly together!
The shaft is a vintage flashlight and an old lamp piece below that.

The wooden board came from an old pay telephone that was given to someone as a retirement gift from the phone company. I found it at a garage sale and the pay phone is the one I used in a previous post with the smartphone charger, accent light and bank.

You just can't beat that chipped paint, original look!

I was surprised the canvas straps were still intact on the fisherman's paddle pushers.
