{Thrifty Thursday} I Love Lamp

 
I was thrilled when I stumbled upon this lamp found a lamp I was stalking at the Goodwill and was able to purchase it on a 50% off day making it a whopping $3.50.
I knew exactly what the plans were for this gorgeous piece.  To spray it head to toe from light bulb insert to wall plug in a ballet pink spray paint. 
People these types of lamp stands {$78 WHHHHAT!? LOL} cost bookoo bucks…so being able to get this look for under $10 {including supplies} = WINNING! 
Now get out there and find your lamp stand + tell it I lamp you and it will beautify a room for you! ;)

      Oh me too! I just went antiques shopping yesterday and had to visit Goodwill right after. Always great to get good inspiration then go treasure hunting right after!

      Hi Megan! Thanks for stopping by! And um, those brownie cookie cups look amazing! I was just thinking about making something similar last night and just opted for cookies. Definitely doing that next time!

    Oh those “golden” treasures always have the best curves!!! I have a few I have painted as well! Love how yours turned out and the shade too! thanks for sharing on Make it Monday!

    That looks awesome! It’s unbeleivable how expensive lamps can be, but you netted yourself a bargain–hooray for Goodwill! The pale pink colour really goes well with the lampshade, without being too ‘in-yer-face’. Great job!

    Im loving this redo! im curious though about the shade. was it one that you purchased with that pattern already on it or is it fabric your wrapped around it? the colors in the shade are all the colors of my little girls room and im wanting to make some pillows.

      Thanks Michelle – Rachel says it was a Liberty of London line at Target, but was only for a limited time and was a couple of years ago. Sorry! Good luck! Can’t wait to see those pillows!

    Got to love a bargain when you see it! What a great transformation with a little paint. I have two of these lamps sitting up in my attic, got tired of looking at the brass~you have given me the idea to maybe paint them now.
    I did recently find a gorgeous lamp stand without a shade, now I’m on the hunt for just the perfect one.
