Howdy all! I was out the other day at our local ReStore, did I
mention I frequent ours? I'm supporting our community, that's right.
I happen to spot a ton of these lamps and just had to buy a couple.
They were $5 a piece, score!. Isn't there an old saying out there somewhere
that if you ever see a "matching" pair of lamps while thrifting to buy them?
I think these lamps all came from a hotel. This would also explain the dozens
of Holiday Inn garbage cans for sale...I'll pass on those.
Wooden and brassy, aren't they are screaming "paint me!"
Bought two shades from Target, spent $14 per shade.
Total cost per lamp:
Lamp base: $5.00
Had the paint on hand and too hard to figure the price on this
Lamp shade: $14.00
Total per lamp is around $19.00 x 2 = $38.00 for the pair
I have been working on our Piano room for awhile now and thought I
should turn over my IKEA Expedit shelving unit. It's perfect for my new
lamps. What do you think?
I have some painting going on tomorrow, all I can say is Gray Owl....pictures
