Hello everyone! I am happy to say that we are down to the final two days of school here! Thank Goodness! That’s all I can say, we are so done with this school year. It’s been a great year but we are ready to go into summer mode. We are ready for late nights, lazy days, pool time, the cape, the Island Home and the beach! It would be ideal if school ended at Memorial Day.
The weather here has been fabulous. We have had a nice warm breeze and sunny skies which makes for perfect pool days. I took this photo on Sunday while we were hanging out at the pool.
Everything is in full bloom and looks so pretty.
So in between being lazy and relaxing by the pool, I finally got around to digging out an old desk lamp that we have had forever. We picked up this desk lamp in Virginia many years ago. It had no wiring and was a bit beat up but my husband and I both liked it.
To Paint or Not to Paint?
That is what I am trying to decide at the moment.
At first, I was definitely going to paint it, then I went to this website and saw all of their Vintage lamps and now I am undecided. My hubs told me to live with it for a while and then decide. I think I kind of like it, it reminds me of this vintage Boston Pencil Sharpener that I picked up at the flea market.
They look very similar to me.
My husband had to rewire the lamp which he taught me how to do. It seems like a fairly simple thing that I might try on my own it the future.
I love all the small details on this little desk lamp. I am still trying to figure out what screwed into the base of the lamp. I reached out the website I mentioned earlier, hoping that they could shed some light on that for me. I am not quite sure what the other grooves were for, I am assuming pens and maybe paperclips. At least that’s what I would use them for.
Until I decide if I am going to paint or not, I will enjoy it in its original state.
What do you think, should I paint or not?
Until Next Time,
