Light Fixture repair

Hi Friends!

If you remember, over the weekend I did a little antique/thrift/vintage shopping. I found a bunch of beautiful and unique pieces.

One being this vintage 1970’s wicker lamp. Now, mind you this floor lamp is over $500 online. But I was able to scoop it up for $45. It needed a new plug– they were broken off. But I have some diy electrical skills and was able to tackle that project in 10 minutes. It was soooooo easy and the piece that it needed only cost $3. So compared to $500, I think I hit the jackpot with this beautiful lamp.

I have to say, I almost passed on this light fixture because I thought It’d be super hard to replace the plug. But you all encouraged me to go back and get it. I sooooo glad that I did! It looks beautiful in every room of my house; so it’ll be traveling until I decide where I want to keep it- LOL.

But the little plug piece came with super easy instructions and I also looked at a short youtube vide just to make sure that I did it correctly. But I basically took off the old plug cut back some of the wire wrap to expose some of the copper wire. I then pulled the wire through the new plug and screwed the wire to the new plug and voila! It sounds complicated but it was not! Super easy. I’ll link a video here so you can see how easy it was and I’ll link my before and after video here.
