Did I ever tell you that I am a yard sale enthusiast? I can’t resist rummaging through peoples discarded items to find a great buy. It is particularly gratifying to take that item and repurpose it into something new. I eyed this old lamp at the last yard sale that I went to. It was late in the day, and the seller saw me inspecting it. It was priced at $5.00, however; I told him that I didn’t need another lamp. The seller said that I could have it for free if I would just take it off his hands; everything leftover was going to the donation center. I accepted his “gift” and the anticipation of what the lamp could become began to boggle my brain.
What I did to the old lamp shade
Time to hot glue on some burlap. I’m going for a shabby chic look.
The finished product. Since the light bulb shows through the shade, I put an Edison bulb light in the lamp. What a unique look!
