the Green Lamp Story

I have been needing a new lamp for our guest room. I have been wanting a good green one.

This past weekend was a Do-It-Yourself/Honey-Do Saturday.

We {ok, Nick} finally got around to painting Hadley's dresser.

We stripped the table-top of our black office desk to stain the top, so our desk will look like this.

And we also went Goodwill hunting, which is where we picked up this saucy number....





Only $8.99?!


Okay, truth be told... I probably over-paid for Goodwill. But this will work perfectly.

{Drum roll, please}.......



One 80's Lamp-                   8.99
One can green spray paint- 3.00
Lamp Shade -                      Free {already had}
White Ribbon-                       .97 
Grand total of                   $11.97




And it looks like a million bucks! 


Or maybe just $50.


What do you think?


**Tip: To paint brass first slightly rough-up with some sand paper. Then spray {lightly} one layer... allow a few minutes to dry somewhat... repeat....and repeat...and.. well, you get the picture. This will allow the paint to coat evenly without running.




Feeling crafty,
