before and after: lamp

August 17, 2011 § 16 Comments

i’ve come to the realization that you can never own too many lamps, and one thing i can’t stand is a dimly lit room, so i’m slowly building my collection. this italian marble desk lamp belonged to my grandparents who were both avid collectors of all things antique.

it originally had a pull chain so i updated it with a 3-switch dimmer. i also purchased an affordable, simple, white lamp shade in the appropriate size for the base. and lastly, i finished it off with a decorative brass wreath screw nob that fastens on top to hold the shade in place. i love things that are not only functional and necessary, but that also offer sentiment and meaning.
