$2.50 garage sale lamps and a little paint

I found these lamps for $2.50 each at a garage sale and just had to get them. Didn't know what to do with them or even where I would use them but I loved the 'bones.'

Well, I let them sit in my basement for a few weeks just thinking about them, trying to figure out what I would do with them. Then, saw a cool project on "resolved-2-worship" xanga site and decided to try it on these lamps. Took off the shades and donated to Goodwill! Got out the spray paint and "wala" (is that a word?).

See the 'after' and let me know what you think.

They look like brand new but I don't think the picture does them justice.


  1. Great find for $2.50! I like the new color and the new shade looks great. Looks like there is some great detail on the base of these!


  2. What a good shopper you are! It looks great!! Makes you proud does it not!!! Good for you! Thanks for sharing!
