I have been on the hunt for a heavy brass lamp that I could score on the cheap. I have loved all of the Pottery Barnish refabs i have seen all over blog land. So....I was
hunting shopping in Goodwill one day and I heard the angels sing. Could it be......a tall sexy brass lamp. Could it really only be $3.50? Yep! Does it work? Yep! In the buggy it went and I am ashamed to say that anyone who even eyed it got the stank eye from me. I would have took somebody down for this beauty.
I rubbed it down with steel wool, cleaned it up and took out the lighting fixture and wiring.
Painted it with "Oil Rubbed Bronze", rewired it with an all in one kit from Lowe's. Picked up a lamp shade from Wal-Mart and all was good until I realized the harp was too big for the shade. Back to Lowe's and got an eight inch harp and no I am lovin it!!!
Light ~ $3.50
Shade ~ $14.99
Light kit ~ 9.99
Harp ~ 4.00
Grand total of $32.48 ~ Not bad if I must say so myself!
What do ya think?
