That says it all. It happened. And now I get to fix up another lamp. I LOVE lamp makeovers – they are the easiest project ever and you always get a bang for your buck. Thrift shops have a never ending supply of old lamps just looking for another life.
However, in this case I went for my other favorite source: THE CLEARANCE SHELVES. (I’m not saying which store because I can’t give everything away. My town is just too small. LOL. But once you see the lamp, you’ll probably know. )
Clearance shelves are THE BEST. Who’s with me?! They hold new styles but maybe they are a little scratched. Stuff is cheap and might need a little love. I ADORE clearance. I live for the hunt, the find and the makeover.
Here’s the lamp I found for $15 on clearance, what a steal! It’s cement and blue. It is a GREAT lamp but it didn’t fit my space “as is.” I knew I could make it work.
First I taped it off (plastic bags are the BEST for spray painting lamps):
Then all I did was prime it, spray paint it the new color and add a new lampshade.
I mean – I don’t think it gets any easier and hubby is off the hook. Life is good and we have a lamp again!
