Thrifted Lamp Makeover

Today’s post is short and sweet, and goes to show that a little bit of spray paint can go a long way!

Thrifted Lamp Makeover

I found this little guy at a thrift shop a while back for a mere $2. I sorta have an obsession with lamps . . . and lamp shades. I just can’t get enough! What can I say, I love lamp. Come on, we all knew that was coming.

It was hanging out in the garage with it’s lampmates until I came across this nifty little lampshade on clearance at Target for $5 a couple months ago! I love how it’s faceted, don’t you?

So I then added a couple coats of spray paint, whichΒ I had leftover from myΒ turquoise and gold pillar candle stick holders.

The color is more of a minty turquoise in person. I <3 this color!Β I think it’s interesting how the shape of the lamp and the candle holders even look similar now, and I’m even considering adding a bit of gold to the lamp. What do you think?

Isn’t it amazing what a little bit of spray paint can make? So the next time you are cruising the thrift store aisles, I hope you won’t pass up a super dated lamp. It could just become your next favorite light source πŸ™‚
