Little White Lamp

I thought that I could do without a lamp for my new little table in the living room. 

I was wrong.
I tried to create a vignette without one and it didn't feel right
I love lamps.  
I didn't want a mirrored lamp because I already had two in this room. 

I wanted a white lamp.
So I thought I would try spray painting one.
I found the perfect candidate for a makeover at the thrift store.
It was a fairly new brushed brass lamp from Walmart.

I thought it had good bones and it was only $8.00. 


I found the lampshade the same day.

It was $3.00. 


I found the pitcher during an antiquing jaunt in the country. 
I was amazed to see it was only $6.00.

I like the new vignette.
Spray paint is amazing.

  1. What an adorable transformation! Your cozy little corner now looks perfect!

  2. I love how it looks so cozy!
    ...and just so you know...people, like me, do look at photos. (for one, I can't take a nice photo to save my life) but I LOVE THE vintage boxes on top of the book shelf in the first picture; and I also like the subtle change of the books! It makes the whole setting a bit more time worn, doesn't it.
    clever trick. I've seen it--but not in this way. Now,I want to try it myself.

    thanks for sharing your new lamp and thrift store finds. Pat

  3. Yes I agree it needed a lamp.And you found the perfect lamp and shade.What great finds!

  4. I love lamps too--it looks great--before it looked like it was missing something. Great job!
