A while ago (years maybe) I bought a $10 light at The Loading Dock in Baltimore.
I had the bright idea that it would look nice in our newly-built master closet.
The finish on it was vintage brass but it had become pitted over the years.
I decided to give it my favorite metal finish: metallic charcoal.
After removing all the glass and spraying the metal parts, I rewired it. The original wiring fabric-covered and ragged.
Earlier in the day we had stopped at Clark’s Hardware for replacement candelabra parts. I had tried 3 other stores earlier in the week and was finally successful in finding the parts and wires for less than $8.
I threaded the wires up through the stem along with the copper grounding wire that came with the fixture.
I positioned the new sockets on the base and connected white wires to white and black wires to black with wire nuts.
The expert at the hardware store said to also use electrical tape which I did. I thought it was overkill but then I’m no expert.
I put all the pieces pack together and, voila, a hanging fixture for our closet which, by the way, Charlie also likes.
What your latest “rewiring”?
