Industrial Lighting?

The days are getting longer! Can you feel it?? Everyday, there's a few more minutes of daylight. I love it!
When I posted my new "leather" table I received so many nice comments. Dee Dee at D Dzine said it looked like it came right out of Restoration Hardware. Wow!! Thanks, Dee Dee! Hearing that made me think, Hey, I haven't looked at Restoration Hardware for ions. Why bother...can't buy anything! But, I thought I'd take a peek and dream a little. These lovelies caught my eye.

Very cool. Love the clean lines. Anyway, I left the sight and went about my day heading to the basement to pull out some things I had put away during Christmas. Then, I saw it. I'd seen it a hundred  times before sitting there in a corner of my husband's shop. This time I stopped in my tracks, grabbed it by the neck and hauled it upstairs.

Hmmm..possibilities? I took a little metal cleaning, polished 'er up and raised her up to her full height Ehhh..I don't know, it's not exactly RH. I'll need to live with it to decide if I like it. To me it still looks like my husband's shop light. What do you think?

Sorry, I don't know why the pics are sideways.....urggg. I'll try to fix later. 


  1. LOVE the industrial lighting! (I hate it when the photos do that - has happened to me too). I think the light is a keeper!

  2. I love it -- It looks fabulous. I would definitely keep it. I have to run out to the trash right now. I threw away a music stand and I think that I could use it to make a base similar to the one you have in your pictures above. Holy smokes -- so glad to have found you!

  3. I would keep it. Love the look of it too!
