But, I paid $10 for it, it works, and it has potential.
While I still haven't found the exact project again that I had found prior, I have gotten some inspiration online over the last few days with lamp bases that look like mine, and what I could do to re-vamp the lamp. (again, a note to self: bookmark your favorite project links!)
Let's get real. Mine currently looks like this:
But, there's hope!
Here's what I initially thought I would do:
Pottery Barn, $189, doesn't seem to be available online anymore. Anyone know the name of this one?
But I found all these inspirations and got confused:
I just love this blue distressed vintage and lettering... plus, aren't those birds charming? :)
I LOVE the shade on this one. I think I have some fabric I could use to cover a drum shade when I find one.
(the above 2 from Shades of Light, but I can't seem to find their prices...)
I like the painted versions, and stenciled ones too!
So, this is where you come in! Give me a heads up- what works, what doesn't? Any of you painted a lamp before? Share your projects! Give me some advice! I think this will go in our new office...
(via DecorPad I could do without the oval in the middle of the pattern)
Not quite a milk jug, but hey, it's my blog and it caught my eye :)
Here's a real milk jug project, again, from the girls over at Shanty 2 Chic! :)
From Shades of Light, this one is $345! I actually don't like this one, but it's the right shape, and it was still available online, for a price reference!
(again, I don't like this one, but the shape is right, and it's good to look at different options)
Here's another REAL antique Milk Jug! Rust and All! (from the Chattanooga Auction House)
($299, yes $299, the Madras Wrapped Lamp from Ethan Allen)
Oh, and Don't forget about our new feature TOMORROW, and every Friday:
Victory Of The Week
Link up with that project you finally tackled, or an inspiring story, or anything you feel victorious over. See you then!
So, what'll it be?!
