My sweet little vintage fiberglass lamp. I bought this guy last year, from Remnant, for $15. It needed a little bit of love and an electrical change.
I used a 220 grit sand paper and vinegar/water mixture to clean up some old tape spots and dirt spots. I also changed out the electrical. I used a light-kit for this (nothing too complicated). The metal frame was also a bit rusty and worn down. SOoooo, I spray painted a light coating of gold. Done. Add a light bulb, and I have a great new to me light fixture! My revamped fiberglass lamp!
NOTE: all of this was done wearing gloves/eye protection. Getting fiberglass slivers is the WORST. Invisible little sharp bits all over your hands = no fun.
