Candlestick lamps updated

We all have these, have seen these or pass them by at yard sales or thrift stores.

Mine sat on my night stands in my master bedroom.

Candlestick lamps.

But they just seemed outdated.

These lamp shades caught my eye at World Market.

Aren’t they cute?!
$14.99 each.

I hemmed. I hawed. I hawed. I hemmed.

Then I bought them quick and ate a bag of donuts out of guilt.

They were paired with distressed white lamps at World Market but were also sold separately……and I knew a transformation was in my future.

Before.

After

White paint that was lightly distressed and a $14.99 World Market shade brought them totally up to date.

Don’t you think?

How many of you have these lamps?

I originally got mine from separate yard sales. They aren’t the same size but I put one on my hubby’s side and the shorter one on my side. They are female and male lamps.

It’s a new thing fashion wise AKA, I just made it up.

I like the matching look but different size….mainly because that is all I had. ; )

Want to see the difference again?

Before…….

AFTER……

LOVE!

Rebecca+newly distressed candlestick lamps and shades=True love forever.

Amen.

Who is going to get the shades first?

Love,

Me
