Once I had the shade - I knew what size and style of base I wanted. So I got this beauty last weekend at Goodwill for $2.50! Total steal!
As a quick tip, I taped off part of the cord and then wrapped the rest of it in a plastic shopping bag! A simple way to keep the cord from getting sprayed too! Again - can I continue to confess how in LOVE I am with the finish on this thing?
So you want to see the finished product! Here she is! My new beautiful $5.70 lamp!
I love her! Here is a shot of her on - the shade is so beautiful! And the dark trim blends so well with the darker base! And my kitty, Fidget, says she loves it too!
Now - here is a shot of the Living Room before with my old lamp and my visual to-do list.
And now here it is with my new lamp!
The lines of the shade are so much better and I love how the darker base adds some visual weight back there. Love! I just keep sitting here looking over at it and sighing with adoration. It is seriously starting to annoy the hubby - but I really don't care!
So what do you think? Have you ever redone a lamp? Would you think about it now?
