Found this floor lamp

Bought this floor lamp at Goodwill for $22. Trying to decide whether to use as is (it works) or upcycle? Looking for ideas. Also searched all over the net to find out the value, with no luck. Trying to find out something! It has no switch, just works by plugging in, has a fluorescent bulb (gets pretty hot) and is heavy. Made of some kind of resin I think. Any idea, suggestions, etc are welcome! Cleaning it up outside before I figure out what to do with it. Too unique to pass up.
Goodwill find!

    I would simply add hooks to each side and use it as a coat rack.

    Great find! I would make sure the wiring is OK and then use it as a lamp. It has a fantastic shape that will make it blend with any time period of furniture. I refuse to live in a dark house and these fit well in corners, behind chairs, etc. to chase away darkness. I put a 7 watt LED bulb in mine so it take very little current (cost) to run it 24x7.
