Found this lamp at Good Will.
What stood out….although outdated looking….was the shade.
It is OLD.
But, once again……..
An older style has found it’s way back.
It is still covered in it’s original plastic.
It reminded me of the shades that I tried to replicate on this post…..here.
Pottery Barn is now carrying a “new” shade with this “old” look.
So, my challenge was creating a “shabby chic” style of lamp for re-sale.
As I was painting furniture this week, I would use the “leftover” paint on the lamp….
I decided to try a “two toned” look.
I started with the AS “Original White”…..on the brassy metal parts of the lamp.
I painted it all. I didn’t want anyone sitting under the lamp…..next to it….to look up and see the different color.
I used the “Aubusson blue” for the wood part of the lamp.
What do you think?
Would you use a lamp like this? Or shade?
I passed by this lamp for over a week.
It is a cheapy, old, metal lamp.
It took me awhile to “envision” the old, crooked, shade as “up-dated”.
With it’s new look, I think it could sell.
Would love to hear what you think?
