Re-Wiring a vintage lamp

Have you ever gone to a vintage market and seen the perfect lamp but then you looked at the frayed or ancient cord and realized you could never plug that in? That used to happen to me until I found this perfect little alabaster lamp which I fell in love with. I knew I couldn’t use it until it was re-wired and what better time than during a pandemic, to learn how to do it myself.

I went online and ordered a table lamp wiring kit from Amazon for around $14. Then I went on YouTube and watched a tutorial on how to wire a lamp. It was so easy and not intimidating at all. The only thing you’ll need is a Phillips head screwdriver and a pair of wire strippers. Everything else comes in the kit.

So next time you see that vintage lamp that’s too good to pass up, remember this new skill you’ve learned. It’s fun to do it yourself!
