Elegant yet down-to-earth, this upcycled lamp is made from a teal and gold reproduction flour tin and a paper shade that I decorated with a motif taken from the tin.
The tin has two designs on different sides (see photos). The shade is off white with a metallic bronze border decoupaged with a matte finish. With the bulb turned on the shade has a more textured appearance, and color will vary depending on the type and strength of bulb you use. A CFL bulb may give a slightly greenish tinge, which complements the tin (photo 2), while an incandescent will lend a warmer tone (photo 5).
- 5 1/2" square footprint.
- 17" tall to top of shade.
- On/off switch on socket.
- Takes a standard base bulb, up to 60 watts for incandescent.
- Shade sits on the socket and is held in place by a retaining ring.
- Base is weighted for stability and has rubbery feet to protect table top.

Most of my pieces are made from vintage objects on the outside, with new functional parts inside. This means they will show signs of their age, which is part of their appeal, but the works will last for a long time. Unfortunately, photographs can unintentionally either disguise or exaggerate the wear on a piece. I encourage you to take this into consideration when making the decision to buy. If you find you aren't happy with your choice, you have 14 days in which to return it for a refund of the item price, not including shipping.
If you have an object you think would make a good lamp, I may be able to help. Use the link to request a custom order or drop me a note. Custom orders are subject to a 20% nonrefundable deposit, as noted above.
