they weren’t looking so fancy back in 8/3(wow time really does fly) when I snapped these babies up on GW run (short for Goodwill did everybody know that) I didn’t but now I do so thought I would share
this was your first look at my beauties…


oh my awesome luck that day to have found a pair of lamps & a pair of lamp shades…

so I revamped these babies about a month after getting them and they were sitting in the new “craft/project/guest” room and as I showed you last week that room is fast approaching capacity which means moving stuff out …

lamps the BEFORE

I just pulled out some of my trusty Krylon spray paint I did use a spray paint primer as I thought this would be best for the outcome of the lamps

now fancy gold lamps

I’ve been waiting to acquire/find some sweet matching drum tables kinda like these I think they would look fab even with the bookcases I have behind the bed and the lamps would look so pretty on them right??

But alas no tables like these have crossed my path yet but the room must be cleared out and so these babies are now put together and looking lovely at the top of the two book cases that flank my bed (how you like flank hee hee I think it sounds fancy)

aren’t they pretty fancy now???

ps – see my Links party page for where I party & share my projects
