small projects

(aka: finishing ones in the wings) These two projects involved upgrading from cheap, brassing fixtures to period lighting. The attic fixture was one that i purchased from the Rebuilding Center as rusted out and without shades. A couple coats of primer and paint, a tassle piece (thanks Chris!) and some shades later... viola! A fixture for under $50! The other light was from Nanny Faye. The age is unknown, and the shades are a little frilly, but it works in a quirky way. Unfortunately we are on the hunt for a matching shade or two new ones as one shattered while hanging in the air. Sad...
