You give me hope....to carry on.....
You light up my days and fill
my nights.....ok, enough already!
Wanna see what I did to some old
lamps? I found these lamps at our
local recycle depot. Another gal there was
rummaging in a box and pointed to the
lamps and commented to me
"Nate Berkus would love these lamps"!
I said - "yup, I am sure you are right - are
you going to buy them?" She said no - she
didn't know how to fix them up
.....well then move on over Buttercup
because I have an idea or 2!!
They were tacky mostly worn off gold
with some missing crystals and filthy
dirty but you can see their potential and
the best part - they were only $5!!
I removed all the crystals, cleaned the bases,
taped off the cord and the socket and broke
out the ORB (oil rubbed bronze). Taking
advantage of the one dry day
we've had in a while.....
My pics are not "staged" very well but you
get the idea. These babies (there are two) will
be moving into my new bedroom. Stay tuned
for a reveal once I have finished fluffing and
puffing it up! I will share what I did with
the shades as well.....
I picked up a whole garland of crystals at
Fabricland with 50% off.....not bad! I thought
these more diminuitive crystals were more
appropriate (don't want my lamps screaming
bordello!).....so what do you think?
I'd love to hear from you!
