So I saw this AMAZING lamp tutorial. And could not stop thinking about it. I had a lamp base that would work, it just needed to be a different color. I used the same one she did by chance. Seems to be a popular one. Anyhoo…and I had some burlap. About a yard. But I had to buy another 1/2 yard to complete it the way I wanted it to look. I am LOVING it!
THEN….I was looking for lamps for my bedroom. I kept seeing all these great lamps that you all are finding at your thrift store for like $2! My thrift store is expensive! The only one I found that I liked was $8 and didn’t work! Ugh! Sssoooo….my friend Kathy lives south of us in a small town with a FABULOUS thrift store. I found a set of lamps (both work!) and a coffee table to refab all for under $17!! So with paint ($3.00) and lampshades ($15 each, drum lampshades are NOT at thrift stores…way too popular) and ribbon ($4) I am at $21 each. Not too bad.
After…(and yes I realize I could use something over my bed..like a headboard)
Up-close….(and I think the two end tables will end up being white…eventually)
