Country Pump LampDecember 30th, 2009 in member junk
A funky old found cast iron water pump is the base for this lamp. It's wired with a dimmer socket at the top, then the 3-panel shade edged in a rope colored trim is mounted on a harp with a simple finnial. The fabric is an oversized pattern of special creams, lotions, and the like, recylced from an oddly printed shirt....I used the back of the shirt, and two of the sleeves for more than enough fabric to cover the recycled lampshade frame. I'm sure there's a bottle of snake oil on that print!!
