A while ago, I saw this lamp at a thrift store. It was brass and had a really, really ugly shade, but it worked when I plugged it in. It was $3.99, so I bought it.
I pitched the lamp shade
(ok, so it's really sitting in the trunk of my van, waiting to be pitched ha).
I cleaned her up and gave her a pretty coat of white paint
Bought a new lamp shade for $10
And here she is......All gussied up.
Not bad for 14 bucks, huh?
Oh, and that white candlestick with the red candle?
I bought that for 99 cents and painted her all pretty too.
Here she was before....
Nothing wrong with it the way it is. I just wanted it white.
