Continuing my clothespin theme from last Thursday, this is how I used vintage clothespins to "save" a nice "lamp-with-issues" that I bought at a local thrift shop.
The dark brown metal lamp with a nice shape had a broken neck, and it's shade was tattered and torn.
My husband took care of all the mechanical problems, then I tackled the shade issue. From last week you may remember that I love simple things ...so I created a canopy shade of vintage clothespins hanging on the "rings" of a old wreath form.
Now the lamp has a new life in the lovely home of one of my regular customers. My advise on repair is to be open to unexpected inspirations and use what you have. Often, a simple fix can be the best.
