I’m going to keep it short and sweet today, but here’s the most fun little Friday fun I was able to make using just a few Goodwill lamps! I realized after painting them that the lighting in one didn’t work (I think it worked when I first started the project?) but one lamp for under $20 works for me. Here’s what I did . . .
Bought 2 Goodwill lamps, each $4 (if I do this again, I’ll only purchase ones without any decoration on them – the decoration somewhat bled through the paint of the blue lamp.)
Cleaned them really thoroughly with Dawn dish soap.
Used Krylon Looking Glass spray paint to paint them (it did take several coats spraying very carefully so that the paint didn’t run.) I bought the paint using a coupon at JoAnn’s, but this price on Amazon is the lowest it’s been priced at. (One can would have been more than enough to do the lamps, but I didn’t want to run out so I grabbed two.)
Added a $10 shade I’d found at Ballard Designs Outlet (love that store!)
Set it next to my Dollar Tree jelly beans jars. 😉
Considering this lamp costs $179 at One King’s Lane (yikes!), I’m pretty pleased with my little Goodwill fun!
Looking for more Goodwill ideas? Here are a few of my favorite updates:
I’d love for you to join me over on Pinterest (I love that place!) If you have a blog and have done a little fluffing in your home, I’d love to see it, so leave your link in the comments section. Also, if there’s a craft you’ve seen on a website that you’re hoping to make, feel free to share that link as well (I’m always looking for new ideas!)
