the details

Mentioned I bring home a small item with me after visiting the farm each week. This week I worked on lamps. Just cleaned them up, repainted them with hammer tone and fixed toggle switch (ya I took it apart and made a new part for it inside), I am crazy that way!

To me, the constant focus on the little things, keeps the big things away. Nicely done B_Boult!

Well the big things (ripping out rotten floor, fixing axle...) get done when I am at the farm. I find bringing home small elements to clean up like lamps, it is calming and gives me time to research properly and not feel overwhelmed. I like to look at and preserve small elements of a project, like a lamp or even an old switch on the lamp. Recently I was in a thrift store full of old hardware and I found, in original package, hinges identical to ones in my 1955 Overlander. To me that was a cool find. But then I live half my life in thrift stores and salvage places. As long as I don't become a hoarder I'm ok. I am good at editing and saying "no" I just don't need a vintage pool table for the AS, not practical and I am not that fussy about getting the trailer that level.

Thanks Suzzeee,
There was some hammer tone painted on some of the lighting I am not sure if it was original but it was not a very good job. They needed cleaning up a little and bring back to life.

I am also using it on the original ring bulb Florescent fixtures. I have a box of lighting to recondition.

Cheers
Brian
