Here’s what it looked like when I brought it home. The part that holds the lamp shade was all crooked and bent. I had to mess around with it for a bit, but I think I got it pretty straight.
Why is everything better with a little black spray paint? Ok, not everything but this lamp will be! I got out the ole trusty black spray pint to gussy this up a bit.
I love this lamp but wanted to update the space a little. I bought this lamp at Marshall's for $25.00 lamp shade included (which is a steal). It was one of my first purchases when we moved into our home almost 4 years ago.
I looked all over for a cute but cheap lampshade. I then realized there is no such thing so I decided to fancy it up myself. I found a little iron on decal at Jo Ann’s (love me some flor de lis ) and thought it would do the trick. I purchased the lampshade at Garden Ridge for (it hurts me to say it) $23.00. Lampshades are stinking expensive! Note to self, start hoarding cheap but cute lampshades found at Good Will.
