Last month I redid an old clock, and for August I'm giving a pottery urn turned pottery urn lamp a new shade.
I picked up a too small shade at Target that looked silly from the get-go, but you know.... I didn't care, I needed a lamp!
Made by one of my kids it's been moved around from room to room a few times. Lately it is resting in the family room, on an end table that used to be my moms to which I recently painted sort of metallic. But that's another story....
I went to Walmart and bought a brand new white barrel shade for $15.00, it was fine, but I never got around to putting it on the lamp.
I left it in the plastic covering, and two weeks later I scored the same shade for two bucks at a garage sale. The new one was returned and I set out to give the used one a new look.
I didn't care if I ruined a two dollar shade experimenting on it, but I didn't want to ruin a fifteen dollar one.
If you are familiar with my dining room chairs, they have a custom graphic on the back paying tribute to Old Albert, the man we purchased our land from.
Print out your design mirror reverse on a toner based printer, or if you have a toner based fax machine like my husband, you use that.
My one of a kind lamp, made by one of my one of a kind kids.... I'm just not sure which one.
Now check out what thrifted item my fellow bloggers have breathed new life into.
