Vintage Lamp

A Bright Idea

Most bedrooms will require at least one or two lamps for task lighting, for reading in bed or getting ready in front of a mirror. Vintage lamps are inexpensive and readily available at thrift stores and yard sales. Choose lamp bases with a stylish shape, and keep in mind that most surfaces can be updated with paint and lampshades are easy to replace. If the lamp is vintage, it is best to rewire before use. Kits can be purchased at home improvement stores, or it can be taken to an electrician.
