Are y’all up for a quick makeover today? I’m sharing a thrift store lamp that I found several months ago.
The lighting in my booth is very harsh, so I thought I would find a lamp or two to add a little softer lighting to my space.
Here is the lamp I found for a few dollars:
It had pretty lines, but came without a shade. I didn’t realize how hard shades would be to come by, and I did not want to break down and buy new.
Luckily I didn’t have to. I found this one for $3 a couple of weeks ago:
It was bashed in a bit at the back, but I loved the rosettes. (And one of my sweet readers informed that it came from a Pier One lamp so score!!)
The lamp base got a couple of coats of cottage white chalk paint and a coat of wax…
And here’s what I found to camouflage the bashed in areas of the shade:
This is a table runner I bought ages ago. I used part of it on this men’s valet makeover:
Of course it’s no longer a men’s valet. 🙂
I also used it for the wings on this sweet owl I made this Fall from an old sweater:
For this project, I hot glued it on place then rolled and dabbed a bit of glue as I went:
I hot glued the rosettes back on top of the crocheted piece.
Very romantic, no? It would be pretty in a bedroom.
I set it up in my dining room, and it looks right at home here.
The original black underneath was perfect for this look.
It does add a softer light to my booth as well. Mission accomplished. 🙂
