a new old light for the lovely couple

A few months ago i think I did a little update in our upstairs hallway and added some shutters with a photo of the most lovely elderly couple standing in what appears to be a field or an orchard. I imagine them to have loved one another, fought with one another, and had a fantastic life together. I don't know these people but their photo lives on our wall as a piece of art.

I don't really have lamps in this hallway. Tried that. When this window is open we get gale force winds that blow out all the dust and then the lamps off of tables.

I had an antique desk lamp in my storage hoard room and used a metal drill bit to put a hanging hole in the base.

Voila new wall lamp and a lit hallway

i changed out the black bird cage for the old brass birdcage from our basement as it was displaced with the recent furniture ADD issue down there

if you squint really hard you can see the screw at the top of the lamp that holds it in the wall plug for hanging. add a timer and you have a great antique night light

Have a great day,

  2. Well THIS is just innovative and FABULOUS!

  3. Love the photo and great idea on the lamp. I will have to try that. One of the things I love best about your home is the emphasis your various art receives from all your downlighting. Now tell us how to install timers because heaven knows I would love the light but am far too busy/lazy to go around my home turning every little art light on by hand.

  4. I think the idea is brilliant and it looks fantastic!

Leave me a note. I'd love to hear from you.
Unless you're being less than friendly, then play like the rabbit and say nothing!
