Headboard lamp. Designed to hook onto a headboard, but also has screws in the back so you can hang it on the wall.
We used to have this in the glamourous location above the laundry basket. And then last year the landlord renovated and we moved the laundry basket away from the wall. Mr. OP must have tucked this away, but unearthed it recently in yet another sweep of decluttering. Must be the prepping for the end of the world or the Age of Aquarius energy.
It uses ye old fashioned light bulb, featured on Day 105. At the time I thought there was only the one lamp left using the non energy-saving type bulbs, this lamp having been in hiding.
Status: Another Sell! I see a few of these on Etsy, surely someone out there hankers for the charm of the 50s with a touch of Art Deco.

p.s. So while linking to an earlier post the other day, I noticed that I had a duplicate. Two Days with the same post number. There are probably more, so that means I’m actually ahead of 317. I know I had fallen behind and, gasp, left out a few days. But in general, I now think I’m more or less on track to finish this project (Phase I) by February 1st, which would mean one post for every day.
With the Yuletide season upon us though, who knows. Is it really festive to be on the box? I’m pre-prepping a few posts with the hopes of maintaining the dailiness, but then again I may decide to drink too much eggnog.
Happy Holidays Eh!
