Repurposing With A Purpose

Bur-lamps

Thrift stores have a wealth of resources for re-purposing……….which is where this little lamp came from……….

I wish I’d taken a picture of the “before” because it was a maroon-purple-ish color on the base……….screamed 1980’s………..big hair & Bon Jovi……….

She needed a face lift & little TLC………….

I lightly sanded the base so the paint would grip better……….

painted with a chrome metallic silver paint……….

found a shade that fit – in fact I think I had that lamp shade in my stash………

added a burlap sash & flower

She looks much better & sophisticatedly vintagy (yes I sometimes make up my own words)

Do you have a small item that needs a face lift with a fresh coat of paint?
