Have a little heart....
I wish I had the before of this lamp that is in my living room. My super great friend, Tina gave this lamp to me last spring. I went home with her for lunch one day. We pulled into her garage and I saw this lamp sitting on top of a shelf. The base was brown with gold highlights and a square gold shade. I said, "Oh, I like that lamp". I didn't like the brown, but I could see the potential. She said..."Oh, you can have it. I don't have a place for it any more". "Really"?, I said, and gladly took it.
I switched the square shade to this oval one I had from another lamp that I had changed the shade on already. I covered it in this fabric and added beads to the edge. I spray painted the base with white paint, sanded the edges a bit and whalla....a lamp I would have bought if I'd seen in a store.
And what makes it better? I've never seen one like it in a store. It's the only one and it's mine...thanks, Tina.
