So I quit looking. Just put that idea on the back burner. Then I talked my hubby into going into Goodwill that is on the way to the cottage. He would not go in. He stayed in the car with the girls and listened to his "50's on 5" !!
Well the look on his face was priceless when I came out with this......
"What in the world are you going to do with that "thing"". Of coarse I had a plan so home it went. Here are a couple of other pics.
I am sure she was beautiful in 1975!! Anyway, I cut off the cord and removed the socket that was there (but not in my pics!!) I then gave her a good scrubbing and painted her with chalk paint in Olde White. I let that dry and then distressed her with some dark brown paint. I then painted a small wooden finial that I had and glued it on the top of the lamp.
Viola.........a big, heavy, finial. I am not quite sure where it is going to go in my house but I am sure I will find a place for it!!
