Salvage Series Ep. 5 - Vintage Desk Lamp 2.0

Salvage Series Ep.5 - Vintage Desk Lamp 2.0

On the final episode of our Salvage Series, we do another version of a vintage desk lamp from Ep. 1!

Step 1: Remove Original Wiring

Gut it!  Remove the original wiring parts so you can rewire with Color Cord Company DIY parts at a later stage!

Step 2: Sanding

We sanded down the original brown paint and found that we loved how to the natural raw finish looked and that it would pair well with our raw metal DIY Lamp Parts!Step 4: Wiring

Lighting Components You'll Need:

1. DIY Cloth Covered Wire

2. E12 Basic Candelabra Sockets

3. E12 Candelabra Socket Covers

4. Grounded Plug End

5. Small 2-Hole Cylinder Cluster Body w/ 1-Hole Cap Option

6. LED Bulb (multiple options depending on your specific vintage lamp)

7. On/Off Toggle Switch of your choosing


Step 5: Final Steps and Finishing Touches

We put the bottom plate back on, added some rubber pads so it would stand evenly and screwed in our candelabra bulbs.  I think it's safe to say that we NAILED IT!  Send us before and after photos of your salvaged projects, we'd love to check it out!
