I found this lamp at the dump it is heavy and has very classic lines but as you can see
it is tough shape. The base has a bit of rust, the shade is stained and dirty.
I did a bit of sanding, and then many coats of black paint.
I tore the fabric off the shade and started the redo.
The fabric on the shade was a stark white and black I toned it down with a pot of coffee.
I sprayed many coats of black. Then I wrapped the candles with vintage music sheets.
I just love how it came out. I was so excited to show husband and get it lit. I plugged it in and
was very lucky I wasn't shocked. this had a control on the cord.
someone took it out and left the wires. The up side to this is just under the base everything is
wire nut so husband will have no problem rewiring. Moral of the story check the cord out first!
I purchased 2 things this weekend a stack of pop up books for Miss B.
and this sweet tablecloth.I think that this was done with fabric paint but
it was a great job and it has no stains.
I will use it on my porch I do use tablecloths and place mats.
Also at the dump I found a great book of positive quotes.
so I will go between quotes and good manners.
I hope you are all enjoying the last grand weekend of summer!
The best part of our lives we pass in counting on what is to come.
