Repurposed Vintage Water Skis Floor Lamp & Coat Rack!

Hey folks!  I still love making things with vintage water skis and this one is another creation I'm very proud of....

I had put the water skis in the triangle pattern almost a year ago and never knew which direction to take it from there as far as the lighting.  Inspiration finally hit and I was able to complete it.

I had the vintage barber-style globe up on a shelf and I guess I never gave it much thought.  It sits on top of a vintage heating lamp shade.  The on/off switch sits atop a great, vintage toy car.  

I thought the vintage (unused!) mouse trap would be a great piece to hold receipts, notes, biz card, or anything else that needed to go with you on the way out the next day.  The vintage toy rocket ship piece is a great place to throw those keys at the end of the day so you know where to find them.

I finally got to use some of these retro hair curler parts on a project.  As you can see, they either hold the umbrella or give it a place to hang on to.  There's three around the perimeter of the body.

I kept the ceramic cone intact on the vintage heater body.

Beep!  Beep!

A nice, round wood base completes the piece with custom distressing and painting to give it a solid foundation. Notice the tinker toy hub piece at the cord exit!  Beat up hinges hold things firmly in place.

See/purchase this one-of-a-kind creation at Timeline Antiques & Collectibles Mall in Shreveport, LA or in my ETSY SHOP!
