Before I get to today’s post, I’m going to show you some recent finds:
I got this at a local thrift store for $1.01
I found this coat rack thingy at a Peddler’s mall for $4.99 ($5.00 is my limit, ya know!)
Now, on with today’s feature presentation:
Do you remember this old lamp I got free from a neighbor?
This is how bad it looked before I took the wire brush and sanding sponge to it.
Did you know that if you actually read the directions on a can of spray paint, that it suggests washing your piece with soap and water and allow to dry?
I’m showing you this little thingy, I got it in the electrical dept at the Habitat for Humanity Restore. The part of the lamp that I wanted to hold the candle was too small. I had to find something else to enlarge it.
This is what it looks like upside down.
This is the base of the lamp. I painted the entire lamp heirloom white (spray paint) The base has nice details, but I think they show up without adding another color.
I was able to score some crystals to add to this lamp. It was very difficult to find a candle to fit the center piece.
I finally found the perfect color and size of candles at Walmart.
