On my 'to-do' list for this weekend is to take two vintage lamps to the electrician for re-wiring. The nice thing about my old lamps are the unique shapes and color; the not-nice thing about my old lamps are old electrical wiring and plugs. If you buy an antique lamp, you should most certainly take it to a quality electrician or lighting store so that the electrical can be replaced to meet modern safety standards. Look in the yellow-pages or Google "lighting store" for your area and you should be able to find a handful of capable professionals. I'll post pictures of the re-wired lamp next week. Until then, have a great weekend!

LOVE this modern orange accent on the traditional sideboard!
