mission complete...kind of
The lamp wiring challenge has been completed! With the help of my wonderful dad & brother, I finally figured out how to get this guy going again. It took me about a hundred tries, but now I really won't forget how to do it. It definitely didn't come out quite as well as I had hoped...it's a bit wobbly and come to find out the base is a little wonky to begin with, the hole in the middle isn't actually in the middle...etc. I had hoped to make some sort of cool lampshade for it but at this point I'm about ready to send it back to the thrift store where it came from. Some projects just don't seem to be worth all the time that you put into them. If nothing else it has been a great learning experience.
