Mid Century Oak Leaf Floor Lamp

OLLR

Mel and I picked this up recently and we were not sure if we were gonna keep it once reassembled.  Little did we know how cool it was until our efforts were completed.

IMG_3199This is a floor lamp that stands almost 4ft tall.  When we got it, all it had was what is pictured.  It was also missing its mogul socket.  I went to a local lighting store and was able to find all I needed to get this lamp back in action.  I tried to find a makers mark and had no luck.  I also searched online for a similar lamp and was unsuccessful as well.

IMG_6412This is where the mogul socket should have been.  The mogul socket allows you to use a glass diffuser.

IMG_3342With the mogul replaced, I could then reassemble the upper portion of the lamp.  The great thing is Mel and I already had a shade that matched it, so it was soo easy making this look good.

IMG_3338Well after a bit of work the lamp is whole again.

Shazam! Here it is all done.  This is a keeper and will look great in our new place…..once we get one.

IMG_3344I really dig the gold streaks with the oak leaf pattern.

IMG_3341We will enjoy this for years to come.
