Thank you so much for joining me for Thrifty Thursdays! An all new link party!
Thifty Thursdays is every Thursday starting at 7pm until Sunday at 10pm EST.
This week you are welcome to link up any thrifty finds, creations, ideas, etc! As long as it’s thrifty, it goes!
For my thrifty project this week, i wanted to share i lamp i restyled. i actually did this awhile ago for my garden suite but never shared it here. I thought this would be the perfect time!
Several years ago, when i was working at this hotel in philelphia they refurbished their rooms and sold the used furniture and accessories to the staff. I purchase two of these lamps.
And a makeover they got! I just love these lamps now. Bright and natural with great textures. The perfect addition to this room.
And the process was pretty simple. I just spray painted the base with a cherry red spray paint i found at lowes. I used the same shade and wrapped it with twine i found in the hardware section at wal-mart. Each roll was about $6 and it took about three spools for both shades. I started at the bottom attaching the twine with hot glue and worked my way up the shade hot gluing as i went.
I think the results speak for themselves! beautiful, right?
I do have one small warning. All the twine makes the shades fairly heavy, so be sure your lamp can support the weight or just used a thinner twine.
Alrighty, now it’s your turn to share….
but first a couple small guidelines:
- Be sure to link up thrifty projects only.
- Pretty, pretty please link back to this party on your post with a link or a button (available in the sidebar).
- And, since i get excited with fun new projects, know that i may share your project here at inspired by charm.
That’s it! Pretty simple.
And you are more then welcome to follow me at any of the links below for highlights from the party throughout the weekend!
Have fun! Thanks again for joining the party!
