This is the lamp that I use to tie all my many living room colors together. I mean what else can you do when you have a plaid couch and “paint strokes” sheets displayed on your window and wall!
Today while opening the window because it was such a beautiful sunny day (take that rain) the lamp separated in my hands. I don’t know if you’ve ever had that happen, but it feels weird. Lucky for me I was able to stuff the upside down lamp between my legs while I surveyed the bottom piece.
The circular piece had come loose and was lying on the table stand and — since I’m not very mechanically inclined — it took a minute for me to realize it was even part of the lamp. Once I knew that, the fun really began because I had to maneuver the metal piece back into its space while keeping the lamp and its long metal neck from moving.
As I said I’m not mechanically inclined, so what should have been a simple repair took me about 10 minutes. I was so proud when I finally got that little pain in the arss piece of metal back in its place that I just had to take photos and share it with you, my blogging friends. Onward…
