thrifty finds {lamps}

I have been searching for a pair of lamps for my living room.
I have lamps, but I wanted something with a chunkier base,
and I didn't want to spend much.

I have consistently been looking for at least 6 months at a local thrift shop.
Patience is key, my friends.
I walked in and saw this pair.
I picked one up and stared looking it over.
A lady came up behind me (a little too close),
and started talking about the lamps that I was looking at.
I quickly grabbed the second one and put it in my cart.
She said, "Are you getting those? They are beautiful."
I said, "yes, ma'am, I am."
She continued to follow me around the store to make sure
that I was still going to get these lamps.

I was headed to the checkout and someone came on the intercom,
and announced that all lamps were currently on SALE FOR $1 EACH!
I went back to the lamps and grabbed another just because they were $1.
I'm sure I'll do something with it.

So, I know have a pair of lamps that I like.
They are currently in my living room.
They are quite lovely as they are,
but I might paint them with a glossy white and add black shades.
I should note that my living room is undergoing some changes as well,
so the black and white would look really nice. Opinions?

  1. Wow, you go girl! Those will look awesome with a makeover :-) I would do the white gloss if I were you as well. Not sure about how black shades will look, how about brown and or blue? Can't wait to see :-)



Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I read and appreciate each and every single one.
