new old lamp



This is a lamp I bought at ReStore recently.
It was what I would call "grandma" looking. And not in a nice way.




A funky shade of mauve, gold base, random flowers.
But I adore the shape.
I adored the little beading detail.
And the price was just right.

So I brought her home, cleaned her up, and gave her a make-over.


I still need to make a permanent shade for her (just consider her to be in her curlers for now.)
But I think her new look suits her perfectly, don't you?

  1. Wow - Yes, she looks great! I don't believe I would have thought to spray paint a glass lamp - and I doubt I could have done the job as well as you did. Her coat looks so smooth and perfect! I'm very impressed with "her"!
