I find myself going to thrift stores and antique malls quite often these days to find gems for upcycling.Today was a good day! I found an old 'New Home Sewing Machine' and table for only $10! On the same trip I found this desk lamp that I thought would be perfect for a new upcycle project.
We'll save the sewing machine for another article.I only want the guts and the lamp head so I tear apart this lamp and discard the base and gooseneck cover.I'm using mahogany wood for the base and I cut it in a way that'll hold Post-it notes and a pen.
This was a fun project that only took a few hours to complete.You can bet I'll be doing some more mantiquing in the future.As always, be safe, be passionate and Make Something!
