Lamp Revamp

So it all began with a spontaneous trip to a thrift store in Atlanta while visiting my sister. We had been antique shopping all day and decided to stop in a few thrift stores on our way to dinner that night. I'm so glad we did because I found this beautiful iron lamp, a needlepoint pillow, and a fabulous bench for $20 that is currently getting reupholstered- I can't wait to share that project! 


The iron lamp I found was bright purple, but I could clearly see the beautiful details and finished product so I had to buy it. It just goes to show that you never know what you'll find when you have a totally different vision for thrifted items. 


Here's what it looked like before. 



Now since I painted it with several coats of light gray paint, it looks so much more sophisticated and now it's ready to shine!


I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I started reading this post because I, too, love lamps and you do a great job updating them. Noticed your "pointy thing" sitting next to refabbed grey lamp. I have a thing just like it, all chipped up, which I bought @ GW. Do you think they are some sort of garden ornament? However i also put mine inside the house as part of a vin.
