All That Swag…Lamps, That Is

Swag lamps are one thing I can say has my heart. I don’t know if it’s the fact that they’re not permanent and if you change the decor of your home you can do so easily or if it’s all the shape they can add to a wall or corner of a room.

I almost always buy a swag lamp if I see one however, I only own 1 personally. It’s a colorful glass mosaic swag lamp and, to me, is gorgeous. I have no idea if it’s old, new, or if someone made it. We did have to rewire it but, I don’t mind that kind of work at all. It’s simple and easy to do.

If you’re thinking, “I’d sure love to rewire a lamp but, I just don’t know how. I mean, I’m not an electrician!” Well, I’m not one either but, I found a wonderful free lighting class that goes into all the details you need to do a simple wiring up of a lamp.  I refer to it often when I’m rewiring a lamp.

Next time you see a lamp that could use updated wiring, you could use this course to help you along the way. It does require a sign up over at Instructables which is just an awesome website all around. Again, it’s free.

I know I said I own only 1 swag lamp but, this one has been hanging in the back room for months now. It’s been waiting for me to list it. I just don’t know when that’ll happen. I really like this one too.

Swag lamps are my favorite type of lamp. It's either because they're not permanent or just because they add so much to a corner or wall of a room. - Retell Seller
