I saved these lamps from the thrift store, and they will be receiving new life. The biggest draw was the trophy like body on these, and don’t be mistaken, they are quite solid. And heavy. Let’s see what they looked like before.
Those accordion shades had to go. I ended up cutting them off and leaving the lining intact. I liked that the shade was nice and simple, basically a drum. Actually the circumference of the top is two inches smaller than the bottom, and after the shade makeover, they do look a little more curvy than they did with the accordion shade. The accordion fabric was pretty sketchy after I cut it off, dust galore!
These lamps are pretty large, and I have not yet decided if they will live in the living room (and compete with the dining room pendant lamp), or the bedroom.
