Just got a new floor lamp finished for our living room. The pictures are taken with my phone, they may not be the best out there.
We had a cheaper metal lamp with a sand counterweight in the bottom. We replaced it with this one. Made out of blue pine from local hardware store. Coated it with spray on poly and briwax furniture wax.The way the knots stand out as red against the gray/blue of the rest of lumber is really fun on this.
This is about 6’ tall from the top of the lamp shade to floor. I really like the way the coloring turned out on the shelves with this wood. Pictures 3&4 are the bottom shelf, picture 5 is the top shelf.
I think this would look great in a place with a nautical theme….kinda reminiscent of a lighthouse.
