I'm a bit of a DIY addict.
I think it's good though becuase it means
I don't pay full price for stuff.
Saving money is the name of the game.
Actually DIY'ing can sometimes be more
expensive than just buying new.
If that's the case I think you're doing it wrong ;)
This DIY project definitely saved me money.
I have been looking for some bed side table lamps
for about a month or so.
I've been stalking goodwills and thrift shops
hoping that a pair will pop out at me.
Last week I was in a goodwill and I
stumbled upon these pretties.
They were in need of some serious TLC.
I know they don't match but I like their differences.
I also think they look very good together.
While at goodwill I also found a few trinkets
that I wanted to paint up and put next to the lamps.
I decided to spray paint the lamps gray.
They look brand new now that they've been painted all pretty!
Buying lamps from goodwill is great
but I'm a little grossed out when it comes to the shade.
I don't know why but buying a used shade just freaks me out.
So I stopped by target and bought white round shades.
The shades ended up costing the most but
I'm glad i decided to get new ones.
I'm so happy with how these lamps turned out!
The little elephant turned out SO cute!!!
That vase ^^^ is beyond gorgeous!!
One of my favorite finds ever!!!
I'm so glad I gave these lamps new life.
They are just the perfect addition to my space!
