This was such a fun project! Upcycle projects are my favorite and this one turned out even better than we imagined.
Steph's neighbor was cleaning house and offered us the lamp you see in the BEFORE pic. These end table/floor lamps used to be pretty popular, but since I see them at yard sales and thrift stores a lot these days, I think their popularity has waned!
Lucky us, they didn't want it anymore. I had a couple of ideas on how to reuse it, but we went with this coat rack upcycle for my house!
The first step was to completely disassemble the lamp. While taking it apart, we realized the parts could be reconfigured easily. With that in mind, we decided to ditch the ornate base pieces on the bottom and to replace it with one of the sleek, no frills top stem pieces. The top portion was actually made up of three of the pieces. Notice the tabletop. In the final project we turned it upside down!
Have you made a coat rack from an old floor lamp? If not a coat rack, what other things have you made with this kind of lamp? We'd love to hear your ideas.
