Thrift Store Lamp Makeover
What is better than great lighting? Finding great lighting cheap!!
If you've ever shopped for lighting you know it can really cost you - even at department stores by the time you buy the base & shade you've spent 50+ easily. If you want something a specific color or style the price can easily move into the $$$ range (per lamp). So when I see a lamp that has a great silhouette I don't hesitate to bring her home.
I found this curvy lady at a second hand store for $2!
She wasn't much to look at but she has great lines (which is what I look for in decor). You can always change color or shade on a lamp - if its electronically sound and has great lines at $2 I'll take it!
This makeover was easy! Krylon Fusion paint does not require any priming - total paint cost $3.24. I simply taped off the parts I didn't want to paint (light bulb holder & cord). Then painted!
You can't go wrong with white - its so versatile and classic!
Add a shade I picked up at Target on Clearance!
Right now its sitting on my craft desk - not sure if I'll keep her or if she'll light up someone elses life?
Total Cost of this Lamp Makeover = less than $10 (light bulb included).
