Project Twenty Four: Floor Lamp and Shade

April Time Out Chicago

A note of welcome to readers who may have stopped by via Time Out Chicago.  Fine Diving is about the re’s in this age of recycling — redo, reglamorize, reuse — and inspiration to launch your own re project.

In addition to the makeover I do each month for the magazine, I scout and transform one object per week from a state of discard to a rehabilitated member of household society.

Starting in October 08 with the vintage rocking chair, I post the Before photo on Monday, with the After results, for the most part, on Friday.  Midweek,  I mix in stories of fellow reclaimation artists and events around Chicago.
