Guess what happens when....

you get lost in my neighborhood** and end up driving down an alley to avoid making an illegal u-turn in front of a cop? You find a pair (yes there is another one) of awesome grey colored class lamps begging to be cleaned up and taken home. These will be perfect for the bedroom! :)



** and yes, for the record, I do get lost quite frequently, and it does seem to happen in my own neighborhood from time to time.

  2. Wait you found these in the trash!! Wow that is awesome,I'm liking the lampshade on them. Just wondering do old lamps have to be rewired? I have a few but not sure if its necessary.

  3. They were really grimey when I found em, but still. I do live in a kinda ritzy neighborhood (but I live in an apt. not some fancy house) - its kind of known for a lot of people to drive through the alleys and find INSANE pieces. as for rewiring lamps.... its REALLY easy to do! Make a buddy at home depot and he will help you or just take it to a lamp shop. You don't have to rewire it if it works, but if it looks like the cord is yucky - its really best to be safe than sorry.
