When Joan from Scavenger Chic first saw an old surveyors tripod across a field at a local flea market, she knew it had to go home with her. She already had a theatre spotlight and had been dying to turn it into a fantastic floor lamp. However, once she got it home, Joan couldn’t figure out how to attach the spotlight to the tripod. That’s where Plan B came into action! Joan instead outfitted it with a lamp kit and drum shade to make this Pottery Barn knock off tripod floor lamp. Don’t you love when the back-up plan comes out just as fabulous, if not even more, than the original plan!?!
Joan was inspired by the Gibson Tripod Floor Lamp from Pottery Barn.
