vintage finds: arch floor lamp

and this, my friends, is why you take your graphic-designer-artist husband estate sale shopping with you. we hit up this sale late in the day on saturday (we really went because it was in a house located on our very favorite street in all of the city), so the expectations of finding something were rather low. I headed straight for the kitchen as robert made his way to the living area, and bam! this vintage arch floor lamp screamed his name. ironically, we had been looking for floor lamp just like this, but they all seemed to fall way out of our price range. but with a little negotiating, we walked out with this beauty minus $60! talk about a score. here are some before + after pics below. 

{it was just waiting to come home with us}
{pre-clean up}
{the pole was really rusted & dingy}
{with a little #0000 steel wool & some wd40, it shined up like new}

{here's the base before. we cleaned that up as well, although it could still use a good coast of paint at some point}
{perfect fit in our home}
{before + after}

  3. Een vloer lamp kan veel van uw algemene verlichting behoeften te behandelen. Wanneer gebruikt samen met andere verlichting opties, kan het ook helpen om een gelaagde lichteffect in een ruimte te bereiken. Daarom helderst is niet altijd goed. Kijk voor dimbare ontwerpen waarmee u de helderheid aanpassen aan elke stemming past. krijgen industriƫle moderne lamp voor uw huis of kantoor at- Moderne vloerlamp design Nederland
