(image courtesy of potterybarn.com)I saw this lamp in the Pottery Barn Catalog, and loved it, but not the price tag - $105 + $39 for the lampshade.
Then on one of my "junking trips" I found this lamp...
Can you see the price tag?
Yes, a whopping $2!
Well, removal of the brass feet (free), 1 can of white gloss spray paint ($2), and one Wal-Mart lampshade ($15) later here is how it looks.
I think I am going to repaint the base in a satin or flat black, but other than that, I really like how it turned out!
Total Cost of PB Lamp and Shade - $144 + shipping
Total Cost of My Lamp and Shade - $19!
This is going to go in my office that I blogged about here where I am also "borrowing" some of PB's ideas!
I am also working on a great chandelier that I will show you when it is done.
