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.
How about those vintage colors! The pieces worked perfectly with each other.
The side pieces are vintage fisherman's paddle pushers. They were used to paddle and maneuver yourself while fishing in an innertube.
Here you can see the vintage flashlight and old lamp component.
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.
Here you can see the original stamping on the "Paddle Pushers".
When the red light was on back in the day, you'd have better watched out!
