WHAT IS IT ABOUT A LAMP?
What is it about a lamp that I like so much? I don't know, but I find myself over the years REALLY liking lamps. When I saw this brown goose neck at a yard sale....for $.50....I couldn't resist. The cord was all frayed and the guy didn't even know if it worked...but for $.50 I couldn't go wrong. My husband can "jimmy" just about anything, so I knew if it just needed a cord we could handle it! Well...one brown extension cord and a few twists and turns later....the thing works! The base is cast iron so if you "hucked" it at someone you could really hurt them, (not that I intend to hurt someone!)So now is sits lighting my cutting table....and it looks so GREAT! I had intended on painting it aqua but for now, it looks nice brown!
