Revamp a Lamp

The July 1942 Woman’s Day was so much fun. One of the things I want to include more of here is what a home front housewife would use in her home. Since many things were in short supply during the war and women were trying to find cost effective ways to spruce up their homes, magazines featured articles with advice to do just that. This article showed readers how to turn old lamps into stylish new lighting options for very little money. The 1942 cost varied from 91 cents to $2.78. If you plug those numbers into an inflation calculator, it would be the current equivalent of about $15 to just over $46.
