Thrift Store Lamp



I have been wanting to try my luck at refurbishing a Thrift Store Lamp for some time and found the perfect one at Goodwill a few weeks ago. 
 
 
It started out as a dark 70's brown, you know the color, the one that looked so good with Harvest Gold.
 
 
The first thing I did was to prime it.
 
 


Then came a couple of layers of spray paint.
 
 





I bought a Lamp Shade Kit @ Hobby Lobby and some coordinating fabric.
 




 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I put it all together and came up with a great looking lamp!
 
 
 
 
 





Leave me a note and let me know you stopped by!

  2. Thanks for stopping by Rachel, I'm headed over to see your turquoise creation right now. By the way, I love your tag line "Living life in small town AR!" 2 years ago we moved from a small town in AR to OH.

    1. Hi Loretta! I know what you mean about seeing the potential in things, some days all I see is JUNK! But, occasionally I'm able to take my time and really look at things and see things differently. Good Luck!
