Breathing New Life Into An Old Lamp
I needed a lamp for our new shore condo. I have done a ton of shopping and I am just about out of money with buying all new furniture for the condo. So spending another $50 to $75 for a lamp was just not sitting well with me and I wasn't finding anything I liked for less than that. But I had the lamp above sitting around doing nothing.
That lamp was a thrift shop purchase that I got for staging our previous home for putting it on the market. It is a sort of gold-y, bronze-y color glass and the shade (while pretty) has seen better days.
I got this Rustoleum primer and paint at the hardware store. I think it was $8 for both cans of paint. I also bought a cute burlap covered lamp shade for about $15 and then added a little twine to it.
After a coat of primer and two coats of paint, I love how this came out!!!
A much more casual lamp that will fit right in with our beach-y condo!
Here is the lamp in the condo.
It really fits just perfectly.
